While springtime usually marks the start of travel season, social distancing and staying at home have become the new normal as we all do our best to keep each other safe and follow guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. And although Tennessee’s top attractions have closed their doors to the public in this unprecedented time, many are finding new ways to stay connected with guests. From video tours to live concerts and zoo animal webcams, these virtual experiences provide the best way to “travel” Tennessee without leaving home while we patiently await the day we can get back out there and explore.
