This very 80’s look of Southern California comes to us courtesy of Miller Brewing Company, who illustrated the area from the San Fernando Valley to Newport Beach in celebration of the 1984 Olympic games. Considered by many to be one of the most financially successful Olympics (thanks in large part to heavy corporate sponsorship), the games took place in established venues like Dodger Stadium, The Coliseum, The Forum, the Rose Bowl, Santa Anita Park, and Stanford Stadium.

Logistics aside, this map focuses on illustrated representations of the various events that took place; weightlifting at Loyola Marymount, archery at El Dorado Park, and yachting in Long Beach Harbor are a few examples. There’s also a great deal to be seen outside the scope of the games, like the off-road truck in the Mojave, a “Valley” introduction, and an imminent collision on Highway 60. Large Miller High Life cans, a hot air balloon and stunt airplanes complete this cheesy visual.
