Being quarantined at home doesn’t need to be boring. Aside from binge-watching your favorite shows, did you know you could go to your favorite national parks and museums without ever leaving your couch? Because no matter where you live, one of your state’s top attractions has a virtual tour for you.
National parks: If you don’t want to visit Alaska because it’s too cold for you, this is the perfect way to explore the amazing tours this state has to offer. Set up your lawn chairs and get ready for a staycation while visiting places like the Katmai National Park. On the contrary, if you are more prone to desert landscapes, visit one of the world’s wonders like the Grand Canyon by taking a virtual hike or raft trip. You could also explore nature at various Arkansas state parks, take the virtual tour of California’s Yosemite National Park, or tour the volcanoes of Hawaii without getting burned!
Museums: Experience the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, through virtual reality or enjoy the artwork from the Art Institute of Chicago. If you are a science lover, don’t miss the chance to explore the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford through virtual field trips.
Beaches: Delaware is famous for its beaches. Now, you can’t quite exactly sunbathe on them, but you could do some cool mediations with ocean views – not bad for a virtual getaway!
Other attractions: If you are an animal lover, good news! Birmingham Zoo has virtual tours so you can say hi to your furry friends, take a virtual visit to one of the most iconic attractions in Florida, DisneyWorld, or walk through the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in Arlee, Montana, for an enlightening experience. If you want the opposite of serene, you could whitewater raft and BASE jump off waterfalls in Idaho without risking cardiac arrest; it’s a win-win if you ask me.
As you can see, there is a lot to do without leaving the comfort of your home. So please…don’t be a Karen and transport yourself during quarantine!
