While daily exercising can be challenging indoors, participate in a cardio hip hop, Pilates, ballet or cardio funk class by going online. Ballet Austin Dance and Fitness is live streaming fitness and dance classes via their Instagram and Facebook. Miraval Austin and Lake Austin Spa Resort blogs offer helpful tips to stay calm and healthy from suggested moves for proper posture to music playlists to help relax before bed.

When kids are getting rambunctious and bored indoors, parents can keep everyone educated and entertained by heading online. The Children's Museum of Houston has fun and cool videos that put a science spin on green slime, show you how to make a light bulb out of a pencil and more. Download a Houston themed colouring book and take a virtual tour of the Houston Zoo.

The Thinkery (Austin’s Children’s Museum) is regularly posting activity videos and story times.

Other noteworthy virtual city experiences:
