Staying indoors all day can be draining, especially when you have kids to keep entertained. While we all need to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by staying at home, it’s crucial that you find various activities and hobbies to occupy your time. For instance, these virtual field trips provide the whole family with the opportunity to engage with others and “escape” from the house for a bit—well, at least digitally. Check out our favorite virtual tours below:
