COVID-19 may have put a pause on most travel, but it doesn’t mean you have to stop dreaming about where to go next. From virtual tours to global recipes, we’ve rounded up ways to experience the world from home while you’re social distancing.

Virtual Museum Tours

You can experience some of the world’s most famous museums from the comfort of your couch thanks to technology. Explore the National Museum of History, the Guggenheim, or many other museums here and here.

Context Conversations

Our partners at Context Travel are now offering Context Conversations, 90-minute seminars with scholars where you discover more about a destination or museum. You can select the date and time for your seminar here, and then enjoy learning and conversation from home.

Read a Book

Let your imagination soar as destinations come to life in the pages of a book. Our team has shard their favorites in the four editions of the Brownell Book Club, plus we have another list of other must-reads below.

Watch a Movie

Just like a book can take you to a different place, so can movies! Take a break from the news, and relax while watching one of our suggested travel-inspiring movies.

Taste the World

Just because you can’t have pasta in Italy right now doesn’t mean that you can’t bring the flavors to your kitchen. Some of our partners – and our Executive Vice President Meg North – share recipes for cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and more!

virtual views

Who said you have to leave your living room to see what’s happening around the world? Many of our favorite hotels and destinations are now offering live streaming, beautiful images, and dreamy videos so that you can experience any destination in real time without ever getting off the couch.

CHILDREN’s activities

Do you have little ones home from school? Here are some activities for young travelers.
