A few days ago, Google Sightseeing posted a few of their “most breathtaking rides” in Street View and they certainly found some great areas.
As you know, Google Earth 6 greatly enhanced the way that Street View works inside of Google Earth, allowing you to “drive” the routes much better than you can in Google Maps.
Even better, Google Sightseeing has put all of the locations they highlighted (plus a few extra) in a KML file for you to download. The only problem is that each location is a simple placemark, and doesn’t fly you directly into the Street View imagery.
Fortunately in Google Earth 6 it’s a simple fix! Just drag “peg man” from the top right corner of your screen onto the road they’ve highlighted, and you’ll instantly be taken into Street View mode, as shown below:
Google Earth has an abundance of amazing sights to see, and this is another great example of that. Thanks to the Google Sightseeing guys for putting together the list of breathtaking rides!
