Style your Google Maps with Snazzy Maps
The Google Maps API gives you complete control over your map, including the styling. Snazzy Maps is a library of various map style configurations to plug into your map object. For this quick demo, I used the style named Grass is greener. Water is bluer.
On the map style page, copy and past the JSON array into an object in your code. Pass that object into the
styles parameter of the map options when instantiating the map, and that's it.
