Walking the streets of Isla from Home

This is so cool...Just found out Google maps has the roads mapped so you can be right down on them. WE have spent hours just getting re familiar. Almost feels like you're there!

sorry if this has already been posted...

And if you get out your trusty mapchick map as a guide, you'll know your way around before you even get there--worked for me!

Does it have smellivision? Can you smell the pork chops on Fredy's grill, the burgers at JAX, or the tacos pastor at Medina Tacos?

Spend a lot of time on there and Google Earth when researching trips. I think people think it is strange when I know my way around a place that I have never been to.

It's one thing to know how to find a specific address, but it's so much easier when you know exactly what the building looks like!

I have used google earth to check out lodgings of other areas I am traveling - just to really see what it looks like as well as more of what the area looks like where it is located. Very helpful tool! :)
