Have you ever wondering how to get to a destination via driving/walking/taking public transportation? Ever wonder if the place you are headed is safe? Did you know that Google Maps gives directions and can show you "street view" images of most anywhere in the world? In this instructable I'll guide you through planning your route with Google Maps!
Step 1: go to maps.google.com
Step 2: click on "Get Directions" and type in your starting address and destination. I'm using my map to get directions between my two favorite actresses' houses, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
Step 3: By default the map will give you driving direction between the two locations, toggle the controls on the top of the menu (see pic 3) to switch between driving, transit, walking, and biking.
Step 4: I don't have a car, so I clicked on the transit option (see the notes on picture #3) to find out what buses we can take from paris' house to kim's house. Unfortunately, there aren't any buses that run between the two houses, but google says that the walk is only 33 min so that's not too bad.
Step 5: Print out your map and you're ready to go!!!1 lol!
