Finding Ferris Bueller with Google Earth and Street View

Here’s another fun adventure from the folks at Google Sightseeing — Ferris Bueller’s Chicago. Through a combination of Google Earth imagery and Street View, they’ve tracked down virtually all of the main locations in the movie.
Some examples include the Bueller house:

Or perhaps you can swing by Glenbrook North High School to pick up Sloane:

They’ve also covered other areas from the movie such as Wrigley Field, Cameron’s house (which is actually for sale right now), the Art Institute of Chicago and the location of the big parade scene.
It’s a great list and it covers every location you can think of in the move. Check it all out for yourself by reading the full post on Google Sightseeing.

  1. Wow, yeah I like to see the film locations of the movies. Maybe if it is OK if Google Street View do images of Hollywood of famous locations :)
