You’re stuck at home until Wednesday, June 10, but that doesn’t mean boredom has to be a part of you and your family’s new normal. Across the nation, businesses and tourism bureaus have launched virtual options for people to stay (safely) entertained at home, including Visit Fairfax.

The new feature, Fairfax First, is available online and offers things like a virtual tour of the county’s most famous attractions, a list of local to-go and delivery options from restaurants and self-care tools for maintaining wellness during uncertain times.

There’s also a kids activity guide to keep little ones entertained, including interactive coloring, quizzes and lesson plans from Mount Vernon; activities and games from the National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center; early education resources from Wolf Trap; and more.
