Weekend Warrior

You could easily spend months traveling the globe to seek out the best sites and attractions. Along with the  lengthy time it would take,  it most definitely would cost you a fortune! Now you can travel the globe in a weekend without leaving your house, let alone a chair! There are several websites  that have compiled a great list of  the best attractions around the world brought to you by Google Maps. A complete list of the sources used can be found at the end of this article.

CyberNet’s Top 10 (listed in no particular order)! Oh, and unfortunately these are not clickable images.

Alright, now this is where you can spend an entire weekend traveling the world.  The website is called Sightseeing With Google Satellite Maps, and they’ve got loads of great places to see around the World- broken down by country. They also have categories like sports and architecture. They say to “think of it as armchair sightseeing, now with 8798 destinations.” I browsed around several different countries and got a great mini-tour from the pyramids in Egypt to Mount Fuji in Japan. Another website called Googol Maps has a list of the top 10 and the top 100 maps viewed with more great attractions to visit from your computer.

Instead of packing your bags to visit all of the most popular tourist destinations, just sit back, relax, and enjoy them all from the comfort of your home.  It will undoubtedly save you some time and definitely save you some money!
