You Can Take a Virtual Tour of 5 Breathtaking National Parks
Google Earth is offering virtual tours of some of the world’s national parks, providing an escape for people during social distancing – Via SecretNYC
Five National Parks from across the U.S. are now ripe for exploration on Google Arts & Culture, who’ve created 360-degree video tours of each park. It’s high-production stuff, too, with a swish video intro setting the scene, and a park ranger on hand to walk you through the most dramatic landscapes, historical landmarks, and beautiful bits of each park. Here’s where you can explore!
