Have you used Google Street View ? Want to see a Street View of Busch Gardens or Colonial Williamsburg ? Vote now to bring Google Trike to the Burg

From an engineer at Google:

With Street View on Google Maps, you can take a virtual drive over the Golden Gate Bridge or see the bustle of Times Square from the comfort of your own home. But some of the country’s most interesting and fun places aren’t accessible with their Street View car. What if you want to tour the campus of William and Mary ,or scout a new running trail at Lake Matoaka or a mountain bike trail at Freedom Park, or plan the most efficient route to your favorite rides in Busch Gardens ?
I first started thinking about this question around two years ago. My day job is working as a mechanical engineer on the Street View team, but I do a lot of mountain biking in my spare time. One day, while exploring some roads less traveled, I realized that I could combine these two pursuits and build a bicycle-based camera system for Street View. The result? The Street View trike:
I’ve already had a chance to take the Street View trike out to photograph some hard-to-reach places for Google Maps, like the Arastradero Open Preserve and LEGOLAND California. When I’m out riding — and once people understand what exactly I’m up to — I’m often asked if we can come to their alma mater, local bike trail or favorite beach boardwalk.

Google is now giving everyone a chance to tell them exactly where in the U.S. they’d like the trike to go next.
At www.google.com/trike, you can suggest interesting and unique spots in six categories:

So come on Willamsburgers lets vote for our area attractions.

All of CW ,Busch Gardens, Water Country, Freedom, York River, New Quarter Park Mt Bike Trails, The Boardwalk at Virginia Beach.

What would you like to see on Google Street View ?

Place your votes and maybe we can gain some added FREE attention for the Williamsburg or Hampton Roads VA areas.

Nominations will be open until October 28. Google will then comb through all of the suggestions and let all of you cast your final votes on a winner from each category for the Street View trike to visit. For any privately-owned or operated location, like a campus or theme park, we’ll work directly with the relevant organization prior to collecting the imagery.
When we unveiled the Street View trike in the U.K., we received more than 10,000 nominations and 35,000 votes; Stonehenge and Warwick Castle were two of the top vote-getters. We can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with in the U.S. — head to www.google.com/trike to submit your most inspired ideas.
