Stay Busy This Weekend with Virtual Tours
By this point in our social distancing lifecycle, we’ve likely tried many new ways to have fun. Virtual happy hours, online workouts, you name it. But we really love this latest trend: virtual tours. From museums to national parks, you can now tune in and check off your bucket list from the comfort of your couch. We’ve even added virtual tours of all of our workspaces – so you and your team can look forward to a distraction-free space to work when we return to business as usual.
But, first, we rounded up a few of our favorite tours so far. Some people have even recommended using these tours as guided meditations if you’re feeling anxious – as many of us are – about the outbreak.
Let your screen take you to one of the most renowned museums – the Louvre. It’s almost nearly impossible to see all of the exhibits if you were to visit it in person, but this online tour is guided and easy to navigate. After touring through the halls and exhibits, the tour can take you outside to admire the impressive facade.
For our Greater Boston natives (and beyond), the New England Aquarium is offering virtual visits and live performances so you can see what the sea creatures are up to — in real time. Watch sea lions train or enjoy a live Q+A the Aquarium’s Explorer-In-Residence. It’s a great screen activity for kids and adults of all ages.
Speaking of kids, if you need to keep your little ones busy, try a virtual trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. You can visit renowned rides – without any lines – on Youtube. Our favorites? For kids, try It’s a Small World and Snow White’s Scary Adventure. For your older children (and pretty much every adult out there), revisit the iconic Space Mountain and Splash Mountain.
If you’re from the Boston area, chances are you’ve heard of this museum's infamous 1990 heist, when three thieves stole 13 works of art. While the pieces have never been seen again, the Isabella Stewart Museum pays tribute to the art with an impressive exhibit. And you can tour it here. Amateur detective work? Highly encouraged.
While they aren’t technology virtual tours, the team here at Workbar is pretty excited about this lineup of live-streaming concerts. Depending on your taste in music, you can tune into Dave Matthews, or John Legend. You can even join Jimmy Buffet’s Spring 2020 Tour called Cabin Fever, Your Virtual Licence to Chill.
And last, but certainly not least, you can look forward to returning to business as usual. We’re offering virtual tours of all Workbar locations, so you can see the private conference rooms (remember those?) and coworking open spaces for yourself. Bring your full team along to tour through our enterprise suites and get excited for the new times to come.
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be putting out more helpful content that can help us all get through this pandemic together. If you have any suggestions or questions, please don’t hesitate to email email@example.com, and we’ll do our best to provide the information you need.
