Google Earth is great to have a mess about with, but have you found anything special out there or interesting?

 

I love to have a look around, follow some routine journery's i do every month, its great.

 

But have you got a must check out place?

 

Here's a couple.

 

Area 51 (amazing, really interesting place)

 

NE7 7BU (Freddy Shepherds House) You can pretend your nuclear bomb ready to explode on the bugger ;)

Its quite uesfull if you're going somewhere - or thinking of it

 

you can zoom down to low level and then tilt the picture to see whatthe scenery look slike

 

I also found it useful choosing between two seperate routes to soemwhere - one looked (and was) a very pretty drive through the hills whereas the other (which looked similar on the map) was actually quite boring

New York is a great place to have a look at.

 

Ground Zero (Twin Towers site)

 

Central Park

 

Are both amazing, especially the size of Central Park.

 

also Liberty island,

 

Empire State Building.

 

Alcatraz

 

And the Casino strip in Vegas.

 

The Pyramids & Sphinx are worth a glimpse.

People should re-look at Area 51, especially the area surrounding it.

 

Massive revamp and new detailed pics.

 

One the intrigues me is a place north of Area 51 were there are trees and what looks like a pond. Next to it a building called 'Life recreation facility'

 

Wonder what they are testing or creating there?
