Google Earth is your eye in the sky. Oh, the places you can go in Lake County.

You may know how cool our attractions look in person (or for a lack of a better word, in the ground point of view), but have you seen them from above? Google Earth has your superb satellite snaps from space.

Do you think you could name these different locations in Lake County without a description? Here’s a look at our beautiful county's impressive imagery from the eyes up high. Oh, the places you can go! (Thanks Dr. Seuss).
