Explore The World From Your Couch With Free Virtual Tours
Looking for fun things to do at home? We’re going a little stir crazy over here but I found a fun way to explore the world from our living room.
Virtual tours are a fun way to explore some really cool places, right from your couch! There’s something for everyone, including Disney, NASA, and even Dracula’s castle.
By now we are on week 4 or 5 (I’ve lost count) of quarantine and social distancing, but it feels like foreverRrrr! I was running out of ideas to keep myself and my family entertained. One afternoon I even found myself watching squirrels from the window. It was actually pretty interesting lol, I saw a few fights and even a little romance. Wait, what? Is this what I’ve resorted to? Send help!
