Five virtual getaways to explore in the new year


Published December 24, 2020 at 4:25 pm


Let’s face it.

We miss travelling and due to the pandemic, it has been difficult coming up with new and creative ideas to entertain ourselves at home. But not to worry, we’ve got you covered.

Here are five little getaways you can enjoy without leaving your couch.

5) The National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC is offering online experiences that allow viewers to learn about the exhibits in the museum in an interactive way.

4) Have you ever wanted to visit the Grand Canyon but never got the chance to? Well, now you can. Get up close and personal and experience the wonder and beauty of this Canyon all thanks to Google Earth.

3) If your trip to Disney World got cancelled this year, you can still transport yourself to your favourite theme parks through Google Street View. Enjoy 360-degree tours of each park and take in all of the little details Disney World has to offer. The best part? No crowds and “free parking”.

2) Unfortunately, theme parks were closed this summer and rollercoaster lovers did not get to experience the thrill of their favourite rides, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be enjoyed virtually. Simply search your favourite coasters on YouTube and you’ll find HD footage of any coaster in the world. No line ups necessary.

1) We know it’s not the same but Google Street View can make you feel like you’re exploring the streets of anywhere you want. Enter your favourite location and you will instantly be transported. The world is your oyster and this is the best way to dive into these places and create that itinerary for when we can all travel again.
