Howdy - I am not sure if this is the right place for this kind of thing, but I am really impressed with the other-worldly experiences that are made possible by Google Street View, and so I wanted to see if I could get a good thread going on it. Today I was marveling at the fact that I could do a virtual visit to Africa from my seat in Kansas City. Geeky, I know. I can't afford worldly travel or else I'd be out doing this for real. Anyway, I *love* these images, and I think they are super cool. Any favorite Google Street View places to visit?

I love Google Earth. Visit the world without leaving your recliner.

One of my favorite things to do is look at houses for sale around the country. Always curious what a set amount of money (Say $180,000) will get you in various places.


One of my favorite sites to do this is Realtor.com because a lot of the time, they use google earth, and I can virtually travel around the neighborhood or heck, all over town. LOL


But yeah, it's fun to see what's out there, and get an idea of what other places look like.

Great stuff! Keep it coming. I found this one on the mean streets of my own Kansas City. Looks like this man is getting a serious beat down just as the Google car is driving by. Rough!

I do this also. Probably my second favorite time suck after Google Maps is Trulia or Zillow. Checking out houses in cities I'd rather live in
