Option to show businesses, attractions and other points of interest on all map tools

The map tools on randymajors.com start with a clean map, such as this from the What City Am I In? map tool, where city names and neighborhood names appear:

Now you can choose to show points of interest, businesses, attractions and more by clicking the POI button in the upper right corner of the map.  When you click the button, Google's default place listings appear, with attractions typically showing first, as shown below.

As you zoom in further, more points of interest, businesses and more will appear.  Current place information (such as temporary closures, etc.) appears with the label.  Click the label for more detailed information and to pop open a place listing in Google Maps.
