As the coronavirus outbreak sweeps across the nation, it’s upended travel plans for millions of people. However, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau has launched its Philadelphia from Home website to help travelers stay connected to the City of Brotherly Love, even during this unprecedented time.


Philadelphia’s website taps into the sights, sounds and tastes of the city. You can explore the destination through virtual experiences from top attractions, including live streams from the Philadelphia Zoo; online tours of several local museums like the Museum of American Revolution, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum and The Penn Museum; and interactive online experiences from the National Constitution Center and the Franklin Institute.

If you’d rather listen than watch, check out the Philadelphia from Home playlist on Spotify, featuring iconic Philadelphia artists ranging from classical to hip hop and jazz to rock. Listen to Patti LaBelle, Hall & Oates, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and more.

Those looking to bring a taste of Philadelphia to their kitchens at home, you’re covered too. You’ll find two local restaurants that ship their delicious Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwiches nationwide or you can try your hand at making this Philly classic at home with a recipe posted on the Philadelphia From Home website.

This is just one of the many destinations making connections with travelers while stuck at home, according to a report by Skift. Several Florida attractions as well as the U.S. National Parks, St. Lucia and other Caribbean destinations also are offering virtual tours or online experiences to help keep travelers entertained and dreaming of their next vacation post-coronavirus.
