Whether you like Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit or not, you have to admit that the world J.R.R. Tolkien built is impressive. Middle Earth is expansive, intense, and filled with rich history. If you’d like to dive in and get a closer look without buying a plane ticket to New Zealand, you can take a tour with Google. They’ve developed an interactive map that will guide you through familiar locations from The Hobbit, and it’s packed with information and games. It’s a wonderful escape from the real world.
