As part of the many April Fools' Day Easter egg celebrations across the Internet, Google has allowed users to navigate their Google Maps program through a classic video game character, Ms. Pac-Man. When using the map program, you can click a Pac-Man icon in the lower left corner to instantly turn the map into a playable video game.
With the ability to turn nearly any place on Google Maps into a Ms. Pac-Man course, check out our personal picks for the best place to play Ms. Pac-Man on Long Island. (Disclaimer: Play soon before the ability from Google turns off.)
