How to save locations on Google Maps?

Is there a way to save locations on Google Maps for future use? I’m going on a trip to Chicago for Christmas, and I’ve made a list of places that I want to check out, it would be great to be able to have them all saved in Google Maps ahead of time, so I can just glance at my phone to see where to go next without missing anything.
