For the grooviest trip of all time, sharpen your pencil, connect the numbers and treat yourself to a neat visit to Mike’s mansion, Davy’s dream house, Micky’s mountain villa and Peter’s cliff dwelling—with a few surprises along the way…

Editor’s Note: If you had a real map of Hollywood, you could find the true locations of the Monkees’ homes simply by following our Magic Trail Code. You could lay the map over the two pages and find out where each Monkee lives. We can’t tell their real addresses but with detective work and a map, you can find them yourself. Anyway, you’ll have a ball connecting the numbers. In any case you should have a Hollywood map at all times. For info on maps, write Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, 6520 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, Calif. 90028.
