What's a cool place to street view (Google Earth) in your town? Tongue out

Ok. Here's how.

You have the globe showing on your screen, right. Now click and hold and turn the globe to the area you want to go. Now double-click to zoom. When you get close enough where you can make out streets, look to the top right of the screen were the compass is. Right under it you will see a little orange man. Click and hold him and drag him to a street then let go.
To drive down the street, double click in the direction you want to go.
To leave street view go back to the compass and right above it click Exit Street View.
To straigten it out go to the top left and click View/Reset/Tilt and Compass

Usually you can just type the name of a place, the street and the town and it can be copy/pasted into Google Earth Find. Then you can drag the little orange man down to the street in front of it.

Pericon de Cadiz? Little thin streets? Is that the right place?

Yeah. My little city by the bay! Calle Lubet was my place, above the bar.
