You can do a virtual tour of famous museums and cultural sites by downloading the app “Google Arts and Culture” on your phone. You can view paintings up close and browse through a number of fun articles such as “10 Animals with Superpowers” and “11 Women Who Changed the World.”

Zoos are also providing everyone to “visit” virtually, like the San Diego Zoo where you can watch the animals live cams or join “Wildlife Talks” on Facebook Live. 

Just google the place you want to visit and there is bound to be a way to visit virtually!

Virtual Concerts

Movie Night 

Whether you live alone or with family, you can set up a movie night in the comfort of your home. 

Get together with your family or roommates, pick a movie and make the popcorn. 

If you don’t live with anyone, don’t fear. You can have a virtual movie night! You can Facetime or Skype and watch the movie together or use “Netflix Party.” “Netflix Party” allows you to watch a Netflix movie with a group of friends. You can pause and comment.
