Explore a New Place

Itching to go out and explore? These resources will take you on virtual visits to amazing places in the U.S. and round the world.

In the Kenai Fjords, the ice is so dense it forms blues brighter than the clear Alaskan sky above. The molten rock around the (very) active Kīlauea Volcano appears to swirl and move — and sometimes it really does! At Bryce Canyon, one of the darkest places in North America, you can see the massive Milky Way glittering across the night sky.

The U.S. National Parks are full of wonders, but most people don’t get the chance to visit in person. While nothing beats the real thing, these virtual tours will allow you to experience some of our most breathtaking National Parks, no matter where you are.

If you’ve ever turned a city corner to be stopped in your tracks by the Technicolor explosion of a mural, you know the impact of street art. Leisurely urban strolls aren’t necessarily on the agenda just now, but you can still explore the world’s best graffiti, from Buenos Aires to Bombay, in Google’s impressive Street Art collection. See giant abstractions transform no-nonsense industrial buildings in Moscow; get spied on by portraits in the arrondissements of Paris; and in Berlin, relive the fall of the wall through its iconic graffiti.
