Plans Canceled? Take a Virtual Stroll Through Some of the Nation's Best Botanical Gardens

Explore these gorgeous gardens without ever leaving your home!

Over the last two weeks, most of us have had to change our routines; many people are working from home, canceled vacations (I'm still bummed about missing my Arizona getaway), and are actively practicing social distancing. But while you’re stuck indoors, there’s still plenty to do; many museums are offering virtual tours, aquariums and zoos are setting up live streams of their animals, and for those craving lush greenery and blooms, botanical centers are thinking up ways to let us tour their gardens without leaving home. Some already have virtual tour options on their websites, while many others have been sharing extra photos and videos on social media to make it feel like you’re walking through their garden.

Here are some of the best virtual garden tours you can take without leaving home. I’ve already had a lot of fun exploring, especially taking in all the details of the aquatic garden in the Buffalo and Erie County Botanic Gardens. And for even more photos and videos, check out the #ourgardensyourhome tag on Instagram and Twitter; it was started less than a week ago as a way for botanical gardens to share photos and videos while many of their visitors are stuck at home.
