Google Street View adds more attractions to Chicago

A few of us here in Techaeris call it the Windy City (or at least the immediate surroundings). We are a short drive from the sights, shows, sports, restaurants, everything that makes the city of Chicago truly great. For anyone who might not be so fortunate or just want to visit some of the city’s landmarks from the comfort of their own home, Google has got you covered. Street View has grown over the years. What started as a way to recognize your destination more easily, Street View now provides detailed maps of store interiors, gives you a bird’s eye view of the Great Barrier Reef, and even allows a virtual tour of the moon.

As part of this expansion, Street View explored culturally significant places such as the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids of Giza, sites of scientific significance like CERN and NASA, naturally beautiful regions at Yosemite and Mount Fuji, and many others. Recently, Street View has started adding popular tourist spots around the world, and Chicago has its fair share.

The most recent update to Chicago’s Street View directory includes the Chicago Riverwalk, DePaul University Campus, Shedd Aquarium, Soldier Field, and Toyota Park. This is in addition to areas already included in Street View, such as Millennium Park, Art Institute of Chicago, Buckingham Fountain, Lincoln Park Zoo and others.

You can see how horrible the turf at Soldier Field is
