In the age of COVID-19, we’ve all been doing our best to stay occupied while quarantining and practicing social distancing measures. Businesses and organizations everywhere have had to get more creative to offer services and experiences online.
Some of these experiences that have been brought to the forefront are virtual tours! From national parks to art museums to breweries – virtual tours are becoming increasingly popular as a stay-at-home activity, especially among senior citizens in elderly care!
Below is a list of 5 of our favorite virtual tours that your senior loved one will enjoy!
