RICHMOND, Va. — If you’re looking for an escape, look no further than your favorite device. AAA is offering a new way to explore some of the world’s most popular destinations from the comfort and safety of your home with the click of a mouse or tap of a tablet or phone.

While many trips had to be postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, AAA wants to inspire people to dream about future travel.

“It’s important for us during this time to provide virtual events because we know people are anxious to continue to explore,” said Amy Short, AAA travel director and host of the virtual event series. “We know people want to get out of the house and go to those different cultures and experience all of the wonderful things this world has to offer.”
