Getting Cabin Fever? You Can Take A Virtual Tour Of These National Parks From The Comfort Of Your Couch

Staying indoors can make even the most intense introverts feel like they’re going crazy. It may not be possible to get out into the great outdoors too much at the moment, but if you’re desperate to take a trip someplace beautiful, you can now take a virtual tour of one of these amazing national parks right from the comfort of your couch.

  1. We have Google Earth to thank for this amazing opportunity. It’s not National Parks Week until April 18, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit whenever you can. However, with traveling and spending time in large groups or public places not being advised at the moment, Google Earth has set up virtual tours so that we don’t have to miss out even while social distancing.
  2. It’s all there for you to see. You can head to the Google Earth website and take guided virtual tours of a whopping 31 of the United States’ most amazingly breathtaking national parks. The tours allow you to take in the incredible landscape, walking trails, and everything else each location has to offer. Hey, if you ever visit in person in the future, you’ll know what awaits you!
  3. So which national parks are offering a virtual tour? The list is long, so buckle up. You can take a digital visit to Acadia National Park, Arches National Park, Badlands National Park, Big Bend National Park, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Bruce Canyon National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Channel Islands National Park, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Death Valley National Park, Denali National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, Everglades National Park, Glacier National Park, and Grand Canyon National Park.
