How well do you know the streets in your neighborhood? Channel your inner cartographer and make a map. You can do it the old-fashioned way—walking around and constructing a drawing as you explore—or take advantage of free digital tools like Stamen's awesome new MapStack. If you want to test yourself, try to draw a map from memory and see how far you can get before you need to look up the next street. Get creative—if medieval maps can have dragons, so can yours—and include your favorite neighborhood haunts.
