Well @ Home | Virtual Vacation

Well @ Home | Virtual Vacation

You’ve Zoom’d everyone you know, you’ve binged Tiger King, and you’ve watched celebs absolutely lose it during isolation. Now you’re ready for some CULTURE, right? 

With WFH and social distancing the new normal, we’re here to support. Please enjoy this roundup of the internet's best streaming experiences for a virtual vacation from quarantine...

Digital Dance Parties

DJ D-Nice is doing weekly (sometimes nightly?) dance parties with roughly 100k people on Instagram live. We went to one that lasted 8 hours and Michelle Obama was “there.” See you at #ClubQuarantine. 

(PS. Questlove is doing them too! And with fewer shoutouts.)

Streaming Concerts

There are tons of streaming concerts across the web. (It’s possible that Sunday’s Backstreet Boys livestream reunion legit made us cry.) Many artists are planning daily streams — like Ben Gibbard and Christine and the Queens. This week there’s also a Phish Sigma Oasis listening party and Yung Lean is doing a live show on YouTube

Major performing arts venues are also participating; Lincoln Center, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and the Metropolitan Opera are just a few. Chic!

Virtual Enrichment

Museums around the world have gone digital! Paris Musées, a collection of 14 museums in Paris have recently made high-res digital copies of 100,000 artworks freely available to the public, and the Louvre is offering virtual tours. There are actually thousands more museums on Google’s Arts & Culture, and the Street View feature lets visitors tour the Guggenheim’s famous spiral staircase while discovering incredible works of art. And if that’s not enough, Open Heritage offers an online exploration of famous historic and cultural heritage sites. 

Livestream With Nature

Monterey Bay Aquarium has live cams! (The Jelly Cam is especially legit.) The San Diego Zoo also has live cams, and we find the Giraffe Cam particularly soothing. 

Haven’t yet been to the Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska? The National Parks Service is offering virtual tours of five US National Parks so you, at last, explore those glaciers, fjords, and icebergs!

We encourage you to use this time to explore, get inspired, stay connected. We’re here to help you find your base and stay Well @ Home.
