A screen host of the Cat’s Cam on the Davidson College campus.


For the past 4+ months we have been have tried to provide our readers with things to do – even when you have to stay put. We changed our regular Friday email from “Ready, Set, Weekend in Davidson” to “Ready, Set, Social Distancing in Davidson.”

One element of the Ready, Set, Social Distancing article has been a list of web sites that offer tours of places far away or the opportunity to start other online adventures. Some links take you to web cams that offer you a “live look” at places close to home or far away. We decided to break this out, and have it as a stand alone article on News of Davidson.

Here’s the list of links that will “take you away.” Enjoy.
