How to Travel at Home
When you can’t travel — because you’re out of vacation time, because the family budget won’t accommodate it, because there’s a national crisis that makes it impossible — you can still dream about travel!
Even better, the internet means that you can take a virtual family vacation.
This section on TravelingMom is all about capturing that family vacation any time, right from the comfort of your couch.
Take a virtual tour of the Uffizi Gallery, even if you don’t plan to ever travel to Italy in real life.
Ride a virtual roller coaster at Disney World or Cedar Point.
Go on a virtual safari with Explore.org live webcams around the world.
Or just stay home and read a book or watch a movie set in your family’s favorite vacation destination — or the place you aspire to visit some time in the future.
Just because you can’t hop on a plane or jump in the car right now doesn’t mean you can’t travel at home. Fire up the internet and take the kids on a virtual vacation.
