2. Check out the walks before you go

When it comes to viewing journeys before you go, existing mapping apps don’t give you the walking directions that are reflective of trails and pathways in the real world. Street View helps you see some turns as well as key points on the way so that you can avoid getting lost.

3. Check if there’s parking

You plan to go to a bar or a restaurant and you don’t know if there’s a place to park, a quick view in Google Street View will tell you this.

4. Help you decide to or not to move to a neighborhood

If you’re thinking of moving somewhere else, using Street View will help with reconnaissance on areas you’re considering. Visiting the place yourself is, of course, much better, but Google’s tool can give you a sense of the neighborhood’s state. You can find out the number of green spaces, the nearby eating and drinking places, the traffic, along with other information.

5. Figure out whether or not to move

You can make up your mind by reading reviews of places, but such public comments are not always reliable. Before deciding to visit a place, you can preview a park, a restaurant, or a bar. With Street View, you are able to see how well the venue is presented, what is located on either side, what kind of neighborhood it’s in, etc.

6. Find the best viewing points

If you want to take the best shots, Google Street View can help you find the right spot, telling you where to stop on a road trip to get spectacular landscapes.

7. Have a trial run for your job interview
