Not Travelling this Thanksgiving? Try a Virtual Family Visit Instead.

With Thanksgiving just a few days away (and the winter holiday season right around the corner) thoughts turn to family traditions of years past. If you can’t make it home for the holidays Bing Maps imagery is a great way to spark memories of turkey dinner, snowball fights and watching football while you work off your “postprandial somnolence”  and this month we’ve released another batch of aerial 2D, aerial 3D and Streetside imagery from around the United States.

Below, we highlight just a sampling of the new imagery. See the end of this post for a complete list of all the new imagery now available on Bing Maps and in the Bing Maps Preview app.

Streetside and Small Town America

American literature and culture is rich with images of family life in “small town America”. Streetside imagery is a great way to experience small communities. Our camera cars were recently in many small towns across the country and captured some iconic images like these:


Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, MA on Bing Maps


Post Office, Barber Shop and Grain Elevators in Ely, IA on Bing Maps


Kidwell Farm in Floris, VA on Bing Maps


Downtown Lisbon, IA on Bing Maps

Of course, our vehicles weren’t just in small towns. Scroll down for the complete list of places new this month on Bing Maps.
