Laughing Squid uncovered some awesome maps from Design Different that show the best routes to escape from zombies in different major cities in the world.

For those who find themselves in Miami, Florida and faced with a swarm of the undead, the Toronto-based art studio suggests they take a straight shot up the turnpike or I-95N, get on FL-40 and hide from the zombies with the Rainbow People in the Ocala National Forest.  They tout the national forest's natural springs, abundant hunting and fishing options and sheer amount of land. A little different than city livin' , yes, but an ideal place to set up camp when the walkers are stumbling after you, thirsting for your brains.

Here's the full Florida escape map:

If you find yourself in another major world city with the need to escape the undead, check out the whole collection at Design Different. Of, if you're worried about the loss on Internet services during the apocalypse, the maps are available for purchase and framing (hence the "Break glass in case of emergency." at the bottom of each one).
