Of one thing we’re sure: we could all use a dose of escapism right now. We may not be able to go outside and appreciate the beauty of the world, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t do it virtually!
You can still explore the natural wonders of National Parks, get mesmerized by wonders such as the Aurora Borealis and daydream about the magical world we live in!
Here are 5 immerse virtual experiences that will make you travel from your own home!
