Virtual Family Learning Escapes14 Apr Taylor Real Estate
At-Home Entertainment & Learning Resources
Wow, to say this is an interesting time in history is quite the understatement. However, we are enthralled and impressed by the incredible resources being brought to us by local and national learning institutes. Technology has turned from many parent's nightmares to their new best friend. Check out some of our favorites for ways to experience museums, art and culture like never before!
Maybe even throw caution to the wind and order a pizza from your favorite local restaurant (they say cheese complements wine after all) and schedule a family virtual escape at a museum!
