For last minute gift ideas, visit the U.S. Geological Survey map sales outlet in Reston for great presents for all your friends and family. The store, and its thousands of maps, is open weekdays from 8am until 4pm.

Take advantage of late night shopping hours on Thursday December 19 from 5 - 8 pm. Bring the kids to see the holiday trains display and USGS exhibits, and do some stress free shopping.

Surprise that special someone with a map of the place where you first met. Buy the kids a map of the place where they were born, or of their favorite summer camp.
