Virtual Vacations Around The World: Stonehenge

April 24, 2020

Physical traveling may be off the table for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a virtual adventure! While we may be stuck at home (for a very good reason!), we can still vacation to faraway places right from our living room couch. From national parks to historic sites to museums, satellites and virtual reality technology have made it possible for people to virtually travel all over the world. Heck, if we really wanted to, we could even visit the International Space Station and take a peek at what Earth looks like from outer space! How awesome is that, right? While many landmarks around the world are closed to visitors, virtual tours of these places are open 24/7. So sit back and relax while we take you on a trip to see some of the most amazing landmarks in the world. Bonus with virtual traveling? No packing, no airport security lines, and there’s no possible way you’ll lose your luggage! First up …

England: Stonehenge


These large prehistoric slabs of stone have puzzled historians and archeologists alike because of their massive scale and circular layout. Mind you, these stones were erected before the wheel was invented, so it’s no surprise that both the ability to move the slabs and their layout have been an interesting mystery to many. Furthermore, experts have discovered that the stone used to build the inner circle could only be found 200 miles away. The largest stones that make up Stonehenge stand thirty feet tall and weigh twenty-five tons, or about the weight of four killer whales! What was Stonehenge used for? One theory is that it was used as a burial site.
