Some virtual travel ideas from Google

Techstination feature for Monday, May 25, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      This sure isn’t your typical Memorial Day weekend.    Far fewer of us are on the road than would normally be the case.   And the folks at Google have some suggestions for virtual travel…places you can enjoy…without leaving the house.   Google’s Justin Burr…

“We’ve seen huge spikes in things like The Louvre virtual tour, Smithsonian virtual tour, Disney virtual tour, Yellowstone virtual tour…more than five thousand percent in the past two months in the United States across all these different categories of people trying to still get their travel fix while doing it from home.”

For many…it’s what we have to settle for…for now.  In some cases musicians and artists are getting closer to fans with online events and concerts.  You can get links to tours and more at www.artsandculture.google.com .

You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
