Can’t visit our country’s national parks in person? Well, now you can immerse yourself in some truly amazing and hidden spots in our US National Parks, with 360-degree interactive views. The Hidden Worlds of the National Parks is an online experience designed to take viewers on a new kind of National Park adventure, guided online by a real park ranger from the comfort of a computer. The site is part of Google Arts & Culture and uses Google Maps. Some of the hidden spots are places that you may never even be able to see if you visit in person!
Currently, visitors to the site can explore places like Bryce Canyon National Park (Utah), Carlsbad Caverns National Park (New Mexico), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Hawaii), and Kenai Fjords National Park (Alaska).
To discover the parks, you just click on the National Park you want to view and then you’ll have the ability to move around the page to explore while a park ranger talks about what you’re seeing. Think about what a great learning tool this could be for children who may not be able to travel to a National Park at the moment. I hope it expands to include more parks soon. Check it out!
