Depending on your approach to award travel and the depth of your bucket list, you may find these maps and posts very useful. Rather than focusing on programs or destinations, I am focusing on the one thing that’s more difficult to change: your home airport. So if you wind up with a free week or weekend and want to just have as much fun as your points will pay for, this resource (once more complete) should be able to help you make the most of your hard-earned points! Maps are arranged more or less with the home airport from East to West.
