Listen to this post with Alexa!

Our series on virtual field trips continues. We already highlighted some museums in Texas and beyond that you can virtually travel to with your kids. Now, we’re taking you to zoos around the country and the world via live cams!

Virtual field trips are a great way to teach your kids about other places and culture from the comfort of your kitchen table, or even your couch.

Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.
