Where It's At is a new mapping site (run by AOL it seems, and sponsored quite visibly by Visa) that plots points of Pop Culture interest. They take user-suggested locales and plot them, complete with descriptions, images, and relevant links. You can look at maps that show just particular areas, like Los Angeles, or the most plentiful one to date, "Movie Magic."

The site is just a newborn, which explains why there are so many spots as-yet unmapped, but if you've got out-of-towners with a penchant for pop culture landmarks, this is one quick way to send them off to see where Britney got her head shaved, the original Beverly Hills, 90210 Peach Pit's exterior, the Scrubs hospital, or the Elliott Smith wall. It's also using MapQuest, which means you're going to go mental trying to make the image above interactive--it's a screenshot, so to get navigating and to suggest a spot, you've got to get yourself over to Where It's At.
