StreetView. This is the one thing they have that I think is unique.
Although Bing have StreetSide, in the UK they haven't covered many areas yet so Google is the site I go to every time I feel the need to look an area up before I travel.
It's great for seeing parking restrictions, finding free parking and more.
I had great fun trying to find a building recently until I worked out that it was still a building site when the SV car went round.Yes, when people come in from out of town I have to remember to tell them that my building is white in Street View but it has since been painted a different color. (And I have a different bicycle, also visible in Street View, and you should not expect to see that exact person walking across the parking lot.)
And the feature that lets you choose the age of the images is great for this also.
