RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN/CNN) — It’s possible the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in the cancellation of your vacation, but Monday is your chance to take one online.
It’s National Virtual Vacation Day and it might be the only vacation you can take for some time.
The virtual vacation is meant to be a simple way to “get away” while still remaining at home.
You can go online and do a search for somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. Then, go through pictures and videos and immerse yourself in the scenery and check out the local attractions.
You can even research local food at your destination and try making it at home.
This could also be a fun homeschooling lesson for kids — part geography, part history.
The best part — it doesn’t cost you a dime, and you don’t even need a passport.
