Spring and summer are two seasons when travel is most popular. Since almost all of us are spending time at home, travel plans may look different during this season. Thankfully, there are plenty of virtual vacations that families can plan that will transport them out of their living rooms and into an adventure. Listed below are a few places to check out from the comfort of your couch. Looking to take a virtual vacation? Let’s go!
Taking a Virtual Vacation
Check out the Louvre in Paris
With just the click of a button, the entire family can virtually tour one of the most famous museums in the world. Social distancing downtime is a great opportunity to supplement some art education. Make sure to check out the Mona Lisa!
Visit the San Diego Zoo
This activity will be a super fun one for your young kids. When touring the San Diego zoo, streamers can expect to see penguins, koalas, elephants and more.
Walk the Great Wall of China
This fun tour will expose your family to one of the many wonders of the world. While you explore the wall, your tour guide will also help you learn a few facts about the wall’s history and construction on your virtual vacation.
Catch a wave in Maui
Your family can watch surfers compete at one of the top surfing spots in the world. If you get inspired, you may even consider setting aside a travel fund to take your family to Maui to see the big waves in person.
Did you know that Mars is 352 million miles away from the earth? Now you can explore the planet virtually with NASA’s recorded footage with the curiosity rover. This may be the best virtual vacation yet.
Hike the National Parks
If your family is a Disneyplus fan, Natgeo has uploaded multiple documentaries about The United States National Parks.
