So, you’re done with work for the day and have no more shows to binge watch. What now?

This is the question many people are asking themselves as they inevitably run out of things to do while social distancing, and settle into boredom. Lucky for us, there’s a plethora of virtual things to do that will lift us out of self-isolation blues. Whether you’re taking a work break or finished for the day, keep reading for our favorites so far.

Kenai Fjords | Destination Parks

Explore a National Park

We’re two weeks into self-isolation, which means it’s time for a change of scenery. Instead of risking exposure at your local walking trail, virtually horseback ride through the sun-swathed vistas of Bryce Canyon or dive through a 1907 shipwreck in the Dry Tortugas. Five national parks and Google Arts & Culture teamed up so that you can discover the beauty of our national parks from the safety and comfort of your couch.

 
The 7-story tower, part of the original house | Winchester Mystery House

Take a Haunted Tour

The Winchester Mystery House is also offering discounted ticket vouchers valid through May 1st, so you can visit the historic estate for yourself when it’s safe to do so.
