Google Street View's coverage extends well beyond local business search. We took a virtual cruise through South Africa and got an amazing sneak peak at some popular World Cup destinations including inside
peaks at seven stadiums. A great adventure for football (aka "soccer") fans. We even got off the beaten path and spotted an elephant! Yup. Not too many of those roaming around on Main Street.
These images are pretty fresh as Google just snapped a slew of new ones in and around host nation South Africa. Here are some amazing Street View portals to get you started:
Soccer City Stadium
Loftus Versfeld Stadium where we'll see USA vs Algeria
Cool view of Table Mountain from the coast
Elephant chilling roadside in Kruger
You can also visit maps.google.com/exploresouthafrica to virtually explore some of the most notable tourist sights in South Africa.
Google has also pushed the envelope and created full 3D models of all 10 stadiums, plus many host cities
on Google Earth -- check them out on the PopSci blog.
