You can even experience new destinations using virtual reality (VR). We’ve rounded up a mix of fun and historic locations to satisfy your appetite for adventure without the need for a first-class ticket. Ready to go?

Walt Disney World

Now you can visit Disneyland and Disney World destinations using these newly released maps. Great news seeing that ticket prices are expected to increase this year. So, whether you’re planning your next vacation or just want to see some of your favorite Disney characters, you can do it without leaving your house.

Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in what is now El Giza, Egypt. It’s also the oldest of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one still largely intact. This impressive structure rises 481 feet and archaeologists estimate it was once the tallest structure in the world.

TARDIS

If you’ve ever wondered about how much bigger the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) is on the inside, here’s your chance to check it out.

International Space Station

The Cupola Observational Module is a panoramic control tower for the International Space Station. The dome-shaped module has large bay windows that offer a 360-degree view Using the magic of Google street view, you can take in a full panoramic view of the Earth as well as the Interior View of the Cupola without the rigors of training to be an astronaut.

Ambrym

Ambrym is a volcanic island located in Malampa Province in the archipelago of Vanuatu. Also called Ambrin, the island was named by the famous Captain Cook, who anchored off there in 1774. It has one of the most active volcanic craters in the world. The lava lakes in two craters near the summit allow you to witness volcanic activity up close. Google street view lets you stroll along the very edge of the lava lakes without fear of the environment. Much easier than traveling there…especially since there aren’t any hotels on the island.

Colorado River

The Colorado River is home to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon. It also supplies drinking water for one in ten Americans and grows approximately 90 percent of the nation’s winter vegetables. Now you can paddle down the United States’ most endangered river.

Machu Picchu

It is one of South America’s most famous ruins and Peru’s most visited attraction. Located in a tropical mountain forest on the eastern slopes of the Peruvian Andes, Machu Picchu sprawls across an impressive 5-mile distance, and boasts more than 3,000 stone steps that link its many different levels. Each year, hundreds of thousands of tourists journey to see this man made wonder. You can marvel at this reminder of Incan civilization using your computer or smartphone.

King’s Landing

Whether you’re a fan of the best-selling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, or the HBO TV-series Game of Thrones, you’ll get a kick out of using Google street view to visit King’s Landing.

But in real life, King’s Landing is filmed in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik.
