Google Maps just Made it Easier to Find Popular Tourist Destinations

Google Maps is well-known for bringing new and helpful features to its platform and now, it has another, landmark icons for quickly finding tourist spots…

There’s no question Google Maps offers a ton of information. It not only provides directions but also, alerts people to traffic incidents, such as congestion, collisions, road obstructions, speed traps, and disabled vehicles.

Plus, it serves as a repository for information about local spots, such as restaurants. Now, it’s gaining yet another feature — landmark icons.

New Google Maps Landmark Icons Spotted in Version 10.28.2

The new Google Maps landmarks tool is already live in major cities around the world, including London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, and New York. It puts greater emphasis on historical sites, but not all cities support the feature. 

It seems to offer more for tourists than residents, allowing visitors to quickly pinpoint an attraction.

The new Google Maps landmark icons are available on version 10.28.2.
