Quick! Don’t miss out on another fun Google Maps feature. This year, in honor of April Fools’ Day, Google has created a Pac-Man version of Google Maps. You can chomp your way across any the globe one street at a time. Locally, the Downtown Seattle blocks around Pike Place Market create a very challenging game for even the best of Pac-Man players. Of course, there are some other cool locations to try across the city like the University of Washington campus, Seattle Center, and Woodland Park Zoo. Happy April Fools’ Day!
