A vacation is out of the question at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can see famous locales. You can now take a virtual tour of the world’s most famous destination. From the Louvre to Machu Picchu, the internet allows you to take a step outside your house even if you, you know, can’t actually take a step out of your house.
A multitude of iconic landmarks and historical sites have online tours you can take while social distancing. You may not be able to fly to them, but it doesn’t mean you can’t see the details up close in a different way.
Whether you had a vacation planned that had to be postponed, or you’re homeschooling kids and need an activity for them, the multitude of virtual tours can allow you to travel despite shelter-in-place orders. There’s a bevy of options.
The Cliffs Of Moher official website features a tour, seen above, or you can take a virtual hike in Yosemite. Then, there’s online museum tours like the one hosted by the Louvre, or if you’re more into furry friends that paintings, you can try a zoo tour.
But it’s not just tours that have transitioned to online viewing. You can ride rollercoasters, attend spring festivals, and see architect Frank Llyod Wright’s buildings, all from the comfort of your couch. Sure, you can’t board a plane, but these virtual options aren’t too shabby for now.
