While we can’t hop on a plane right now, there’s no reason that we can’t all take a virtual vacation (and hit pause on our aggressive Tiger King 🐅 binge for JUST a few days). If you’re feeling the need to get away, here’s a list of our favorite destinations to visit without ever having to leave your house:

Yosemite: Yosemite is our favorite National Park in the U.S. and now you can view Yosemite Falls from the comfort of your own home. Since it’s springtime, Yosemite Falls is PUMPING.

Livestream the Trevi Fountain, Rome: Head to the Eternal City and take a virtual dip in one of the world’s most famous fountains: The Trevi Fountain. This is usually packed with people, but it’s currently empty and ready for your virtual viewing. Italy, we miss you dearly!

Hvar, Croatia: Coco visited this island back in 2009 and in 2010…it’s just that amazing! This tiny island is a favorite for sailors and now it’s streaming its idyllic island views 24×7!


Shibuya Crossing: This famous pedestrian crossing in Tokyo can see over 2.4 million people cross each day. While things are not as crowded right now, it’s still amazing to watch via virtual vacation! Thanks to Visit Japan for promoting this!

Cancun, Mexico: Our dear friends Alli Hagendorf and Brian Jaffe got married at Nizuc Resort in Mexico and said it was the most AMAZING place ever. Now, you can all enjoy the sunshine on the Yucatán Peninsula.


Shibuya Crossing is an iconic Tokyo experience

Kenya: Watch a livestream of a “living laboratory” with the Mpala Research Centre. You’ll get to see a 24×7 live feed of hippos, zebras, leopards, and other wildlife!

Google Arts & Culture: This website offers free tours of various National Parks, monuments, and museums – absolutely free! You can also download the Google Arts & Culture app on your iPhone or Android and enjoy virtual tours on your smartphone! Our favorite “vacation” on Google Arts & Culture has been our “trip” to Machu Picchu!


Always wanted to explore the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu? Now is your chance!

The Louvre, Paris: The Louvre is one of the most famous art museums in the entire world. Since you can’t fly to Paris right now, head on over to the Louvre website where you can take virtual tours of Egyptian Antiquities, the remains of the Louvre’s Moat, and various galleries.

Smithsonian Museum of Natural History: Since all Smithsonian museums are closed in Washington D.C., you can take yourself on a virtual tour at the famous National Museum of Natural History. These tours are fantastic to replicate a virtual  vacation / spring break for the kids. Plus, they also work on a mobile device.

Cliffs of Moher: The Cliffs of Moher, located on Ireland’s west coast, are some of the most dramatic seaside cliffs in the world. Drop into your own virtual vacation by visiting their website and checking out various vista points.

Great Wall of China: The Great Wall of China, one of the seven wonders of the world, can now be accessed right from the comfort of your own home. The Wall stretches across 3,000 miles of Northern China, but you now get to take a virtual vacation with just a click.


Quench your wanderlust with a virtual vacation to the Cliffs of Moher

The Vatican Museum: The Vatican Museum is allowing virtual visitors to explore iconic places like the Sistine Chapel and the Chiaramonti Museum with just a click of a button!

Britain: Attention all you theatre buffs! The National Theatre is broadcasting full length plays every Thursday. Bonus: You can enjoy the arts from the comfort of your couch. Pants optional.

Abu Dhabi: If you’ve ever thought about exploring the Louvre Abu Dhabi or the famous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, you can now do so virtually on the Visit Abu Dhabi website. Our spring 2020 trip to Abu Dhabi got postponed due to COVID-19 so we’re loving this virtual vacation!
