17 Best Travel Scratch Off Maps for Your 2024 Bucket List

Travel scratch off maps are my favorite way to keep track of my bucket list progress, and these maps are the PERFECT gift for the dedicated traveler in your life.

But they’re also perfect for the travelers that don’t call themselves travelers!

You know the ones. They’re visiting every ballpark or football stadium in the US, or something similar.

Whether you want to visit all 50 US states, all 63 US national parks, all 7 continents, or every country in the world: there’s a scratch off map for that!

Best Travel Scratch Off Maps

It’s fun and incredibly satisfying to come home from an amazing adventure and get to scratch off another country (or 4!) from your travel map.

It helps alleviate the post-vacation depression period, too. (That’s a real thing. It’s not just you.)

Adults and kids alike will love a scratch off map to track their bucket list adventures, and there’s a map for every style out there.

Here are my top picks for the best travel scratch off maps!

World Maps

XL World Scratch off Map *editor favorite

I have one similar to this one in my foyer, so I see it every day and smile.

It’s worthy of a big frame and showing off to everyone that visits your home.

Smaller version + 7 Wonders of the World

How about a portable version which also has the 7 New Wonders of the World to track.

There’s even a blown up detail of Europe in the corner, so you can still see each country!

Smaller, Portable World Scratch off Map

Here’s a portable version in a more traditional style.

Tie Dye World Map + US States & Canadian Provinces

How about a tie-dyed scratch off map?

This map also outlines the individual US states and Canadian provinces if you’d rather have a two-for-one map instead of separate maps for each purpose.

Black & Gold World Map

Perhaps you want to go dark and like the black and gold look.

US States Maps

Watercolor US States

Keep it simple with this US scratch off map with watercolors.

US States & Landmarks

This US map also tracks popular landmarks and adventures and comes with a travel journal.

Great option for adults or kids!

US States with Black Background

A simple black background with bright colors of each state

US National Parks Maps

Simple US National Parks Scratch Off Map

This national park scratch off map shows each park in relation to the rest of the country.

You really get an appreciation for how lucky the western US is to have all those parks so close together…

I’m not jealous; you’re jealous…

US National Parks in a Grid

From the same company that makes the previous national parks map comes the national parks scratch off print.

A more-orderly grid of the 63 national parks and less wasted space for areas that don’t have a park.

US National Parks with sketches

I love the sketches on this national park scratch off print. Perfect for school projects or the national park enthusiast!

EVERYTHING in the National Parks System*

This epic US national parks map is *not a scratch off map*, but it doesn’t show just the 63 national parks.

It shows EVERYTHING in the National Park System!

National parks, monuments, seashores, lakes, rivers, trails, historic sites, memorials, preserves, and battlefields.

This is an incredibly detailed map that will make your favorite national park enthusiast squeal with joy when they open this gift from you.

Also comes in brown/tan and black/white. Use this listing if you just want the poster and not the professional frame.

Other Great Bucket List Maps

US Ballparks

Dedicated baseball fans might like to track their progress as they visit all the Major League ballparks in the US.

US Football Stadiums

Similar to the ballparks, maybe you know someone working on visiting all the NFL football stadiums in the United States.

Best Hikes in US National Parks

100 Best Hikes of the US National Parks for the serious hiker in your life.

A Cross Stitch World Map for the crafty traveler!

Choose your own pattern for filling in countries visited, or trace routes across the map with a different color for each trip.

(I have this one, too!)


There you have it: the best travel scratch off map gifts for every traveler!

I hope you enjoy one (or more!) of these awesome maps and hang them proudly on your walls at home.

Happy Travels!
