Google made available "draggable driving directions" in Earth view — By simply clicking on a route and dragging it, you can choose an alternate - perhaps more scenic or more familiar - route to your destination.


The next time you plan to drive, whether it's a short day trip to park you've never visited or a weekend road trip, make sure to check the route and switch it up if you'd like. And, after getting directions, just grab the blue route line with your mouse and drag it onto alternate highways or streets. The route will update automatically, redrawing your path in 3D as you move your mouse.
