Interesting Map Direction in Google Maps

Interesting Map Direction in Google Maps

While casually playing around Google Maps to find out driving directions to different places that we were visiting, we found a ver interesting combination. Following from this post, we observed that Google Maps even suggests a route from Dallas to London (in UK). Just try out the following routes for example:

  1. From: 5310 N MacArthur Blvd, Irving, Texas 75038
  2. To: St James's Palace, London, Greater London, SW1A 1JR, UK

It suggests very interesting combinations for the direction:

  1. Drive: 5,500 mi (about 30 days 10 hours)
  2. When you scroll down, Item 26 reads as Swim across the Atlantic Ocean 3,462 mi

Hi Deepak. When did you relocate to Texas from India? Glad to know about it. By the way, I found the "swim across the ocean" very amusing!
