Social distancing got you down? We understand the challenge to stay busy and occupied while practicing social distancing measures and staying quarantined! But fortunately, business and organizations from all over have worked hard to bring us a new form of entertainment: the virtual tour!

We are loving being able to “visit” a national park or an art museum while at home! Senior citizens are especially loving virtual tours to experience adventure while not having to put themselves at risk.

Check out 5 of our favorite virtual tours below that your senior loved one will enjoy!
