Google Maps and Walking Directions
I love this one, particularly since when I'm out of town or visiting a new city I tend to walk... lots! It really makes sense since you typuically will walk a different path to a location than you would drive... imagine a walkway over a busy road, perhaps a small alley in China Town that connects busy streets (I'm thinking Fan Tan in Victoria BC as an example!)
