Tour The US National Parks From The Comfort Of Your Home
Google's new 360-degree video feature lets people take a trip to Alaska, Utah or Hawaii and see these marvels of nature up close
Google is bringing the popular U.S. National Parks to you up close and personal. And the best part of it all, you don’t even have to leave your seat. The Hidden Worlds of National Parks is free for viewing for everyone at any time.
What’s special about this Google offering? For one, you’re not just presented with high resolution photos of these wonders of nature. Instead, Google is offering a 360-degree tour of the five parks: Kenai Fjords, Hawai’i Volcanoes, Carlsbad Caverns, Bryce Canyon and Dry Tortugas. Whatever destination you choose, there will be a designated tour guide.
The videos can be moved left, right, up and down, so it feels like you’re actually there looking around. It’s a great way to visit another place, a cherished one at that, without leaving your home.
