Seniors across the country are adapting to the changes in daily life caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It may be a difficult time we’re in right now but our safety comes first and that means we just can’t get out and about. We do have some virtual options for travel. In between thorough hand-washings, pick up your smart phone or get on the computer and try a few of these.

From Detroit to Disney, automotive museums to otters at the zoo, we truly hope these links offer some helpful options to “get out and about.” Take a virtual trip around Michigan and beyond. Become a PVM armchair traveler!
