43 Interesting Websites You Can Visit When You're Bored Online
Internet is an ocean of websites of all sorts that could keep you busy for as long as you want but there may be times that you find yourself bored and having difficulty to find anything interesting online. This post will give you some nice options.
So, you are done with checking your emails, viewing your social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, watching some videos on YouTube, reading the latest news, playing your favorite games a bit and now you are bored and need to find things to do online while you are waiting for something? You came to the right place as in this post, I will list 43 cool and interesting websites you can spend some time whenever you feel bored online.
Some of these websites are simple but engaging games, some of them focus on Google Maps related exploration, some of them let you create your own music and some of them are just pointless stuff that would make you forget how the time passed.
I found a lot more websites during my research but I had to filter many of them out. Because some websites were very annoying in terms of graphic, video or audio, some websites were using photos of other people which is most likely a breach of privacy, and some websites were not fun or interesting at all.
Now, let's start with the list of interesting websites that I compiled.
Interesting & Cool Websites to Visit When You are Bored
The following is the list of 43 nice websites that I believe will keep you busy when you are bored. Please note that some of the websites listed below automatically play music when opened, I placed a notice as "!! Plays Sound" for such sites.
