Family Friday: Virtual Vacations

Home » News from Youth Services » Family Friday » Family Friday: Virtual Vacations

One small comfort to being stuck at home is that locations all around the world are opening their doors, virtually, to visitors for free. Whether you want to check out an art collection, a battlefield, or a beautiful place, they are accessible to you through the Internet.   

One of Google’s resources is The Hidden World of the National Parks. You can visit five different parks and explore what makes those parks special, as well as areas that most visitors don’t get to see, with the help of a park ranger. A visit to Kenai Fjords in Alaska allows you to climb down into a crevasse, kayak through the icy water, and see how the glaciers are melting. Dry Tortugas Park in Florida has a sunken ship and beautiful coral reefs you can explore. Also included are Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, volcanoes in Hawai’i, and Bryce Canyon in Utah. Don’t miss this chance to go on a once in a lifetime adventure, all from the comfort of your home!
