Virtual Tour – Virginia Aquarium

Aquariums are beautiful, peaceful places to visit – be it in person or virtually. That’s why they show up so often in our Virtual Tours!

This week, we are at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. The exhibits at the museum are contained in over 800,000 US gallons (3,028,000L) of fresh and saltwater displays. Travel on an aquatic journey from the shore to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean and experience coastal habitats from around the world. Thousands of animals representing over 300 species, displayed in entertaining and educational exhibits, are ready to enchant, entertain and inspire you!

Virtual Tour – Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is one of the best known historical sites in the Western Hemisphere. Originally built in the 15th century and abandoned during the Spanish conquest of South America, Machu Picchu is a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Built on top of a mountain saddle, the terraces provide stunning views of the mountains and the valley below while the ruins give visitors an idea of the daily life of one of the largest civilizations in the New World.

Virtual Tour – Christmas Lights Tour of London, England

Virtual Tours are back! We first brought you virtual tours in the spring during the initial lockdown as a way to allow you to see places that you couldn’t visit. There are so many beautiful places around the world that so many of us will never be able to see in person for many different reasons. But that shouldn’t stop us from still being able to enjoy them! So we will be bringing you virtual tours from locations around the world. Look for these posts every Friday!

This week, we are going to take a walking tour around London, England to check out some of the best Christmas light displays across the city for Christmas and New Year 2021 . We know that Christmas was a week ago, but this Christmas Lights Tour from merry old England is too beautiful to wait until next Christmas to share.

The tour starts in Covent Garden with its beautiful large ornaments, Christmas trees, and mistletoe. Then we get to see view Leicester Square and Oxford Circus all lit up for the season. Continue on to the famous Regent Street and The Spirit of Christmas’ Angels Walk. See the world-famous window displays at Hamley’s Toy Shop, followed by a walk to see Selfridges amazing Christmas tree displays before ending in Chinatown. Enjoy!
