Going on a trip can be such a stressful experience. But, let’s walk you through the ways you can use Google Maps to plan every aspect of your next big trip.
Most of you know about Google Maps. It’s Google’s Rocky Balboa, the comeback after that new kid on the block showed up – Apple Maps.

With that said, I’ll assume that you are already aware of the basic features of Google Maps – after all, it’s pretty simple. By merging the best elements with standard GPS functionality, Google has concocted a highly reliable piece of mobile navigation software.
Google Maps is an essential tool for anyone planning a day trip or holiday, providing a clear yet detailed overview of locations and how to reach them. More than that it provides a simple way for all of us to find our literal place in the world, though it cannot help with the more figurative notion of belonging. Google Maps was already amazing, and then a few years after its launch Google Street View was added to the mix.
