This should've been laminated. My AAA travel agent gave me the website after I saw her map. I was disappointed to spend so much and for a paper map that was not laminated.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
From National Geographic:Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We regret that this map did not live up to your expectations. Although this map is no longer laminated, it is durable and is printed on a waterproof, tear-resistant material. We are transitioning our City Destination Maps to print on this new material. The previous versions were printed on paper and then laminated to add durability. If you prefer to return this map for an exchange or refund, please contact our customer service department at NGCatalog@ngs.org.
