As we emerge from COVID-19, we are facing a whole new world. While we navigate this new familiar there are some unexpected delights that happened while we all pressed pause. With technology on our side, we’re now able to virtually explore many far flung places around the globe that perhaps we thought we’d never see. Here are five places you can virtually visit from the comfort of your couch.
The Taj Mahal

While you should definitely visit Yosemite National Park in person, taking a virtual tour of Yosemite Valley is still awesome. Here, you can navigate to the summit of Half Dome, to the base of El Cap, and to the Merced River. Regardless of what’s on your screen, the sounds and views of Yosemite come alive.
The Great Pyramids of Giza
