With the COVID-19 pandemic that halted travel this spring, many Americans have turned to virtual vacations, visiting their favorite attractions from the security of their homes.

However, the most popular sites differ from state to state.

The team of Frontier bundles—An online authorized reseller of the telecommunications company Frontier Communications – recently analyzed the search results between March 4 and April 3, 2020, to find the most popular virtual tour destination in the 50 United States.

For many states, the most coveted virtual destination was a local attraction such as Walt Disney World Resort (Florida); the Georgia Aquarium (Georgia and Alabama); Houston Zoo (Texas); the Monterey Bay Aquarium (California); the Shedd Aquarium (Illinois and Wisconsin); the Detroit Institute of Arts (Michigan): the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (Massachusetts); the National Aquarium (Maryland) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York).

Virtual reality

However, a majority of states have shown the most interest in international sites. For example, the age-old Inca citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru has proven to be the American favorite in Alaska, Montana and South Dakota while the Louvre in Paris has captured the imagination of residents of Hawaii, Minnesota, New Mexico and Rhode Island.

Meanwhile, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam won against Arizona, Oklahoma and Oregon and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, won first place in Idaho, Nevada and Utah.

Other notable international sites that have emerged from Frontier Bundles research include the Museum of Art of Sao Paulo (Connecticut, Indiana, North Carolina and Virginia); Palace of Versailles in France (Arkansas and South Carolina); the Acropolis of Athens in Greece (Washington and West Virginia); the Vatican museums (Nebraska and Tennessee) and the Paris catacombs (Mississippi and North Dakota).

For those looking forward to traveling again, virtual tours of the world’s best sites and attractions are a great way to fuel their desire to travel without endangering themselves or others.
