Adventures at Home

Feeling a little stir crazy? Looking for new things to learn, explore and do during this time at home? We’ve put together a list of Adventures you can enjoy together without leaving the house.

They’re all free, virtual activities – national parks, museums, story times, tutorials, and more. The goal is to have something for all ages and interests. We’ll keep updating this list as we find/receive more ideas.

Here are some tips to make them more fun:

  • Schedule Time to Make Memories – If you were visiting a museum or going to an event, you would schedule time specifically for that adventure, right? Try doing the same thing, just with the virtual version. A place or time with the least interruptions will allow you to get the most out of the experience.
  • Focus on the Experience – Close your extra internet browsing tabs, silence your phone, and enjoy the adventure in front of you. Experiencing it in the moment feels more like the real thing.
  • Make it a Date Night – You don’t need to get all glammed up (you could, though!). But a couple extra touches (snacks, atmosphere) to set the mood will go a long way in making memories.
  • Choose a Theme – Is it a museum tour around the world? What about a National Parks adventure? A specific time period or historical event? Love animals? Visit as many zoos and aquariums as possible. Learn a new hobby. Or pick a city, like Washington, D.C., and load up all the local cultural experiences you can.
  • Involve the Kids – There are a ton of cool programs for kids and grownups to adventure through together. (Bonus: You don’t have that long walk back to the car when you’re done!)
