At home? Accessing culture is still possible

 

Special to The Dispatch

 

 

Who doesn't love that wanderlust feeling for adventure? But right now we need to stay at home. That doesn't mean we can't still experience what the world as to offer through virtual tours, says Los Angeles-based budget travel and lifestyles commentator Lyndsay Myers. There are many amazing virtual tours that you can take you on an adventure -- from museums, to national parks, to Broadway. Walk the halls of some of the best museums in the world, see the highest peaks in Hawaii, or watch "Phantom of the Opera," all without leaving the couch. You can still get some art and culture while staying safe and healthy.
