Google Street View Inside World Cup

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 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.
