Google Maps never stops being a source of immense entertainment. Those Google Maps cars and satellites capture life as it happens. You never know what you’ll find when accessing the street and/or satellite view of an unfamiliar area on the service. It could be something weird, scary, hilarious, or breathtaking. You just never know.
With that in mind, 2014 was an exceptional year to be a fan of the strange things on Google Maps. Here are the top 15 weirdest, craziest things we found while using Google Maps during this past year.
