Places You Can Visit (Virtually!) While Staying at Home

by The Young Hippie on April 14, 2020

Let’s face it: we are all spending more time at home than we really want to. It is incredibly frustrating!

Fortunately, not only are there lots of fun things to do, now that most of the world is in this situation – people and organizations are coming together to create even more activities to delight & entertain us.

Do keep in mind that while we are listing national & international activities, there are probably things that are right in your community. Your local library may be doing their monthly book club online. Some gyms are offering exercise classes virtually. Even beauty salons are providing videos, so you can make your hair and nails look their best, when you can’t keep up regular appointments.  Don't forget our accessories page for ideas!

Take a look at some of these activities, as we are sure you are going to find some that will make you smile. Do know that there are lots more added every day. Celebrities and other entertainers are offering concerts and fun things, whether during the day, evenings and even on holidays too!

These are fun things to check out from the comfort of home. It is neat to explore new places online if we can’t get outside.
