This site is so cool! Type in your address or any address you fancy, and then Vpike will take you there on the map. If the roads are marked in blue you can zoom in until you see the street itself.
I typed in the address where I spent my childhood in Lorain, and I was lucky enough to get blue streets. So I zoomed in, and there was my old house. It was kind of freaky because it looked as though the only thing that had changed from my childlike view of things was that our car wasn’t in the driveway.
I think this would also be a great way to scope out a house you want to purchase, or if you have directions to somewhere you’ve never been before and want to get a feel for what the area looks like you could check it out here.
And I love the simulated drive-by option. You can watch the YouTube video to get a better idea of how that option and works and a list of other things you can use the site for.
Check it out today, and take a stroll down memory lane like I did!
