Weekend To Do List - Socially Distant Edition

Each week we bring you the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List. We don't want to stop now! As our counties and state start opening back up many are still staying home and being cautious. Step by step we will get back to "normal," but while we wait, we want to bring you plenty of great things to do. It's easy to go stir-crazy at home, but thankfully there are a lot of ways to stay active and safe while you're practicing social distancing. 

So let's try another week of the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List: Social Distancing Edition!

When: Saturday, May 16th, 9am-1pm

Watch and Listen: 360-Degree Dollywood Virtual Rides

When Dollywood isn't open this will have to be the next best thing! Even though there’s not a substitute for experiencing Dollywood in-person you can still take a virtual ride with several on-ride coaster videos that allow you to take a 360-degree adventure right where you are. It’s best-experienced on a device other than a desktop—a device like a smart phone or tablet you can move to “look” around as you ride. Can you almost feel that Smoky Mountain wind in your face??

If virtual roller coasters aren't your thing they still have a variety of entertainment and info on their blog including manicure tips from their spa, a digital Dollywood puzzle, and a tour of Craftsman's Valley!
