The spread of the coronavirus is changing the world as we once knew it. Sporting events, graduations, and concerts are canceling. Our favorite restaurants, movies, theaters, beaches, and nail salons are closing. Social distancing is the new normal, and we have to avoid contact with other people to help stop the virus from spreading.

For some people staying indoors is not ideal and can drive them crazy. Virtual tours out there can help you at least feel like you're getting out of the house.

If you are interested in watching live streams from your favorite celebrity or want to hear, some live music Billboard has you covered. The magazine has a list of upcoming live streams they are updating every day online. So jamming out in your PJs in the livingroom is approved.

Museums like The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, The National Palace Museum, and NASA Langley Research Center all have virtual tours that make you feel like you're actually inside the place.

If you're you're looking for something to do with the kids, The Smithsonian's National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute, The National Aquarium, and The San Diego Zoo all have live webcams you can set up. You and your kids can experience the wildlife or take a trip underwater.

And Google Earth has a lot of features. You can take a virtual Voyage to beautiful places and learn about different cultures.

So there's no excuse. Even though you're stuck in the house, you can still explore the world thanks to technology. And if you know of any other virtual tours share with a family member, neighbor, or friend.
