GoogleTreks – Exploring the World with just A Few Clicks

Google is constantly amazing me.  Honestly, if I wasn’t in the education field, I think I would want to work for Google, solely because of all of the really neat things they are continuously coming up with!

My newest Google obsession?  GoogleTreks.

Similar to a virtual field trip, visitors can explore unique and exotic locations using Google’s StreetView technology.  I included them in my Virtual FIeld Trip list below, however felt they deserved a post of their own.  My personal favorite is their Trek of Darwin’s Gallapagos Island.  You can click your way all throughout the island, and even take a “swim” with the sea lions off the coast.  It is truly one of the most unique web experiences I have ever seen.

Take a minute this Friday and explore a corner of the world that you might not have ever seen before – and keep checking back, because they are adding more (VENICE! coming soon!).  Tell me your favorite destinations in the comments below!
