I'm the type of person who loves making lists of everything, from my day-to-day to-do's to adding cities to my bucket list. But when it comes to planning out a vacation or a short trip, those lists are out of control. I text a bunch of my friends, get advice from co-workers, and end up having suggestions of where to go and what to do on five different post-it notes plus a few on my phone. If you're anything like me or are looking for a better way to group places to see and visit, then you'll want to try the latest update on Google Maps.

The feature, which is out on Android and iOS, lets you easily create lists of places. Planning a trip? Look up all the places you want to go and save them. Have a friend coming into town? Create a list of places to visit and share it with them. That's the best part; any list you create can be shared with a friend via text, Facebook, and more.

Curious about how to make your own list? Follow our step-by-step guide ahead. Trust us, it should make going somewhere new less stressful.
