Oh, The Places You'll Go (on StreetView!)

Google's StreetView is expanding to new frontiers, like for example this car wash in Phoenix.
Using a backpack mounted device they can also go into narrow alleys and interior spaces such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Note the nice map of Africa on the wall.
A zoom in reveals a little more detail but if you want to read it I guess you have to go there.
You can also visit the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, Connecticut. You can tour the inside,
 and even get the floor plans in the map view.

Google also lets you view ski resorts, ancient ruins and the Grand Canyon.

Hopefully the next stop is not our bedrooms!
