Many of us cannot wait for a change of scenery and have us daydreaming of far off adventures. The effects of social distancing have left many feeling cabin-feverish. Though we all try to stay busy by keeping active and working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak, it's easy to fall into a rut. Luckily, there's more than one way to stave off boredom. Broaden your horizons with some virtual tours. From National Parks to the Met, let’s explore incredible destinations virtually.
