You can find everything you need in one place using Google maps. You can find neighborhoods and see if they’re close to downtown, parks or other places of interest. If you’re moving into a new home, you can look for nearby supermarkets, hardware stores, restaurants and other places that will help you settle in. Almost every business listing includes the phone number, website, store hours, price and more.
Even if you know your hometown like the back of your hand, odds are you’ll want to go somewhere new at some point. Not only can you find out the address of a specific location and get directions to it before even heading out the door, but you can virtually explore the neighborhood with Street View (available in many cities in the U.S., Japan, and Australia), or check out live traffic conditions. You can also use the “Send” feature of Google Maps to text the address to your phone or email directions to friends.
