Above the Goog/e map that appears, type in the address you are searching
for. The more information you can give, the more precise your search will be.
For example, searching for "St. Petersburg" will tell Goog/e to go to St.
Petersburg in Russia, but if you specify "St. Petersburg, Florida" Goog/e will
find the city on Florida's Gulf Coast.
In the example given here, we'll be searching for the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
at the University of Florida.
