Ten of the best webcams you can find online

By September 5, 2009

One of my favorite things to do online is to look at webcams all around the world. It's a fun way to scratch that travel itch without spending any money! In order to find webcams, you can use a simple trick that will help you find webcams nearly anywhere in the world. Here are a few that I found:

  • Large Hadron Collider: Images from inside the LHC chamber and the LHC parking lot. *
  • Live video feed of Haystack Rock: One of my favorite places on earth; it's fun to watch the people strolling on the beach.
  • Myrtle Beach, South Carolina: "Watch from an ideal vantage point above as tourists enjoy the sand and surf of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina's famous Atlantic Ocean resort."
  • Friedberg cam: Gorgeous view from the top of a church in Friedberg, Germany.
  • Rapallo Italy: Click on the web cam buttons to get a panoramic or zoomed-in view of a boat mooring in Rapallo, Italy.
  • Alta Badia: A beautiful ski resort in the Italian mountains.
  • Big Ben: This is a live streaming webcam mounted directly across from Big Ben in London, England.
  • Pyramid Cam: Pretty much what it sounds like! View the Great Pyramids of Gaza, Egypt.
  • San Diego Zoo Panda Cam: Live video from the panda habitat.
  • Panama Canal Authority: Watch ships as they make their way through the locks.
  • Grand Tetons: Stunningly gorgeous view of the Grand Tetons in Wyoming.

See what I mean? Take a little trip via this collection of webcams and you'll be glad you did.

*The LHC cam is a joke, if you were worried. I have to admit I was for a minute!
