Tour Some of the Country’s Best Attractions Without Leaving Home

Did you know that you can tour some of the country’s best attractions without leaving your Marquette at Willow Crossing Apartments home? If this sounds like fun, then here are three virtual destinations you don’t want to miss.

United States Botanic Garden

In the 18th century, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison shared a dream. They wanted to create a permanent national botanic garden that showcased plants from around the world. Their vision became a reality in 1850. Today, the United States Botanic Garden is the country’s oldest continuously operating attraction of its type. 

The virtual tour offers a 360-degree view of nine gardens. You’ll see the Jungle Room, Palm House, and so much more. 

Library of Congress 

With more than 162 million items, the Library of Congress is the world’s largest library. It’s also the nation’s oldest federal cultural institution. The Library serves as the research arm of Congress, and it strives to inspire creative endeavors. The impressive collection includes books, recordings, and motion pictures.

The virtual tour offers a look at the Library’s three historic buildings, including the Jefferson Building. After invading British troops set fire to the Capitol Building, President Thomas Jefferson donated his personal library. He had spent fifty years collecting the books, and his library was considered one of the finest in the United States. 

Mount Vernon 

Famously known as George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon is one of the most iconic 18th-century homes in the United States. Over time, the mansion expanded, and Washington oversaw every renovation advising on both design and decoration. The mansion has been preserved back to 1799, the year he died.

The virtual tour provides a glimpse into each room. Viewers can click on objects to learn more about their history.
