Are there any places you'd really like to visit from seeing them on Google Street View?

GSV currently has most of the US and parts of Australia, Madrid Spain, Tokyo Japan, and rural France on it. The most impressive city I had seen is Sydney Australia. The architecture is incredible and its downtown is very urban and clean looking, I also like the bright brown color of most buildings.

Post I love Google Street View

I could play around on it all day long.

Someone had recently posted a pic of a supposedly ugly street on here. It looked too ugly to be believable, so I went to google street view and discovered the photographer had used camera tricks and/or photoshop to make it look that way!

Things that surprised me from Street View

1. Atlanta is very rural looking outside downtown. It's mostly ranch style homes surrounded by pine trees even 2 miles from downtown

2. Tokyo Japan is mostly 4 story apartment buildings. I don't know if a lot of older buildings were lost in WWII, but the architecture is largely unappealing

3. As mentioned, Sydney Australia is architecturally incredible and its has the best downtown I've ever seen - very urban with a great mixture of historic buildings and neat looking newer buildings

4. Madrid Spain is very pretty but those narrow streets would make me claustrophobic. I like the bright colors of most of its buildings
