Discovery Map's Brian Bamrick Celebrates 25 years of Making Maps, Friends and Memories

Discovery Map International, Inc. is the leading provider of curated guides to top tourist attractions, cities and towns throughout North America. Bamrick is the owner and publisher of Discovery Map of Cape May, Discovery Map of Princeton, Discovery Map of Long Beach Island and Discovery Map of Lewes/Rehoboth. He began Discovery Map of Cape May in 1995.
"I remember quite well knocking on the doors of businesses just prior to the Super Bowl back in 1995," said Bamrick, a trained graphic designer, who owned a graphic design business prior to Discovery Map. "While not everybody bought space, those initial visits laid the foundation for a number of relationships, many of those still going to this day."
Shortly after starting Discovery Map of Cape May, Bamrick purchased Discovery Map of Princeton later in 1995. He then followed that up by starting Discovery Map of Long Beach Island in 1996. In 2009 purchased the Discovery Map of Lewes/ Rehoboth, an existing Discovery map established in 2000. Bamrick commuted between New Jersey and Delaware for six years before relocating to Millsboro, DE in 2015.
"One of the reasons I bought a Discovery Map franchise in the first place is I was a fan of the map. I remember very well the first one I picked up in Woodstock, Vermont," said Bamrick. "So, after starting the Cape May map it was easy to see how a Discovery Map at other locations could be successful. That's what led to me purchasing Princeton, LBI and eventually Lewes/Rehoboth."
Bamrick credits Nancy, his wife of 41 years, with some of his success as Discovery Map owner. "She's been my biggest cheerleader,"
