I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

What-To-Do Wednesday Virtual Visits: Grand Canyon National Park

If you are in an area that is still in the process of opening up and there aren't many (or any) museums and attractions in your area open for visits yet, you can still get your dose of culture. Many museums and other attractions offer a variety of virtual exhibits. This is an especially great time to explore museums and attractions that are outside of your area and maybe even outside of your country that you ordinarily would not be able to get to because of time and/or money constraints. We are doing so as well, and we have been sharing our virtual visits in our weekly What-To-Do Wednesday posts. We we will continue to do so until we can return to our regular Where-To-Go Wednesday posts. 

What: Grand Canyon National Park

  1. Thank you so much for these links! My dad has been wanting to get me and my sister out to the Grand Canyon for the longest time. I think that this will be a top priority once the pandemic is ended, whenever that might be.

    1. I would love to get there in person too. Don't know if I ever will though. Thanks for visiting Says Me Says Mom and your comment.

  2. The Grand Canyon is on my bucket list. The virtual experience will have to do for now, though.
