It’s a small world…at least on the internet.

The world as seen on Google.

Do you wish to travel the world, but you are as poor as I am? Fear not! I have explored the United States and beyond to bring you a gallery full of surprises. However, you have to do your part too. You must guess the location based on a single image designed to throw you off your game.

I have eliminated any revealing identifiers such as street names to keep you stumped. The answer key is at the bottom. Good luck!


Dry grassland featured from the highway.


A modern apartment complex with a pool. There is also a skyline in the background.


Dense forests surround this road.


Arid mountains and plant life line this road.


A city street nestled within colorful buildings.


A sparse pine forest with snow on the ground next to the highway.


A few spread out trees and a fence along the highway.


A strip mall with generic restaurants and shops.


A highway with plains on either side.
