Google Maps offers dry tour of Niagara Falls, safe view of Buffalo Jump
TORONTO – Have you ever wanted to experience the Maid of the Mist tour of Niagara Falls without being dampened–sometimes drenched–by actual mist?
How about the Calgary Zoo without the line-ups or odorous animals?
Google Maps unveiled virtual visits of more than 50 new Canadian destinations in its Street View feature Tuesday.
Touting the country’s natural beauty, Google provides a look at Canada’s national and provincial parks, as well as Alberta’s Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump–a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Take a look at some photos of the new additions to Street View below, which can also be found by a name search on Google Maps, then clicking on the Street View button which will appear in a bar across the bottom of your screen. When you’re in your browser, the small yellow Street View man icon and map will appear at the bottom left of your screen, and you can click highlighted areas to get various views inside.
If you prefer indoor activities to the great outdoors, there’s also some new additions to Google’s cultural icons. If theatre is your thing, there’s Toronto’s Massey Hall, Ed Mirvish Theatre (below), and Princess of Wales Theatre.
