Want to find where something is or how to get there? Instead of visiting an online map-providing service, just enter an address into Google. You can also copy and paste addresses, even ones with embedded carriage returns, into Google's search box. When Google recognizes your query as a location, the results page includes links to map providers for that location. Clicking on a map-provider link takes you to a map showing the location result.
Enter a U.S. street address, including zip code or city/state. Often, the street address and city name will be enough.
Beside an icon of a map are links to map providers, as shown below.
Click on either the Google Maps link , Yahoo! Maps link, or the MapQuest link to view a map showing 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy in Mountain View, California.
Often the Google Local service can find where something is located without your providing an address.
Click on the link to a map provider to obtain a map.
Click on the link "To this location" in Yahoo!Maps or on the radio button "Driving Directions from this location" in MapQuest and specify your starting location.
Then you'll get a nice set of directions that you can print out and take with you when driving.
