Entertaining kids is really a challenge but I have recently discovered Google Street View (yes, I just learned about it now and, yes, I have been living on a Jurassic era for quite sometime)! A colleague told me of this and I immediately searched for places that would be interesting for my two cuties. I have to say, they love it! Our “visits” are just fun and my son keeps on asking me where will we “go” next.
As fun as it is, I have to share with you the list of our favorites so far. Talk about roaming the world in half a day!
Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Enjoy the view aboard a Rhaetian Railway train. Breathtaking!
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Finding Nemo gets to mind when we visit this place.
Amazon Rainforest, Brazil
Experience the ultimate outdoors by virtually visiting the Amazon in Brazil! You can visit either the forest or the river or both.
Liwa Desert, United Arab Emirates
Be smitten by the camels! Imagine, we are visiting this fascinating desert in an airconditioned room.
Loch Ness, Scotland
I told my little ones about the alleged monster’s sightings in the place. What’s also interesting with this place is that it is said that it never freezes! Cool fact.
Pyramids of Giza, Egypt
Need I say more?
Grand Canal, Italy
Roam this place aboard a gondola!
Lamborghini Museum, Italy
What makes this museum awesome is that you can go inside the cars. My boy enjoys this so much!
Smithsonian Museum, Washington, DC
We’ve only seen this in the Night at the Museum movie but now, we have access from 1st til 4th floor!
White House, Washington DC
Who wouldn’t like to take a peek at this grand residence?!
Count Dracula’s Castle (Bran Castle), Romania
This much less spooky than we expected.
Taj Mahal, India
Amazing architecture and amazing love story behind the structure!
Eiffel Tower, France
You can see the tower, up close and personal, uh, virtual!
I have received a lot of questions from my kids on this but Wikipedia was my partner!
San Diego Zoo, California
This where we usually go to often. Click on it and you’ll know why…
That’s all we have so far. How about you, any other Street View favorites that you can suggest?
