Nearly 10 years ago, Google blew everybody’s mind with a new Earth mapping tool called Street View that was slowly building a database of every street in the world. It meant never getting lost again by “previewing” every road trip. These days, competing against Virtual Reality, the angle has shifted, including detailed looks at some of the world’s most traveled to destinations. Here are some of the coolest…
Mount Everest, Nepal
The GSV road stops at base camp, but in Google signature style, there is a “virtual” trip all the way to the summit. Just watch out for the frozen mummies…
Taj Mahal, Agra, India
The Taj Mahal was the first World Heritage Site to open its doors to GSV, giving access to areas of the palace not open to the general public. Turns out, there’s even more beauty on the inside…
Diagon Alley, Hertfordshire, UK
This is the street where Harry Potter buys all his Wizard stuff. Even if you’re not into the story, it’s an eye-popping place to visit and explore.
Palace of Versailles, Versailles, France
The historic palace is the place where the treaty to end World War I was signed. That didn’t work, but a stroll through the place on GSV certainly does…
Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England
Get down with the Hippies from both today and a thousand years ago. You’ll find out both had a fascination for mud – and lots of it…
The Colosseum, Rome
Walk the floor of this most famous of ruins and you’ll get a feel for what it was like to fight for your life against man and beast. Kinda like making it through a traffic circle just outside the historic amphitheater…
The White House, Washington D.C.
Ending up on a virtual tour of the Oval Office after “driving” through the gates on Google Street View is like being on a high tech “Road To The White House”…
Grand Canyon, Arizona
If a rugged climb down the walls of this most famous canyon or rafting the whitewater rapids of the Snake River is not your cup of tea, a GSV visit is the next best thing…
Times Square, NYC
Hey, what better way to wind up a trip on Google Street View then to stroll the streets of The Crossroads of the World?
