Summer Staycation Tips
Jul 12, 2013
Staycation Itineraries are Key to Enjoyable Experiences
The biggest challenge of a staycation is making sure that you actually take time out of your normal lives to have a vacation. The only way to do this is to create a staycation itinerary just like you would when visiting a vacation destination. Whether your vacation style includes relaxing and reading books on the patio, visiting all of the sights, eating at all of the best restaurants or enjoying a destination’s natural wonders, map out your plan ahead of time to keep you on track to enjoying your staycation. An itinerary also reduces the tendency to schedule household chores or catch up on projects during your time off.
Be a Tourist in Your Own City
Every city has attractions for visitors to enjoy. But that doesn’t mean residents should miss out on all of the fun. Make your staycation one to remember by experiencing your city the way a tourist would. Grab your city’s local guidebook for ideas on local venues such as museums, parks, as well as local concerts and nightly entertainment options.
Pamper and Relax
Every good vacation includes the Elements of rest and relaxation. Start your staycation by scheduling a massage to put you into complete vacation mode. Staycations also are an excellent time to nourish your mind and body with the luxury of sleep. Make it a priority to sleep in during your staycation and even sneak in a nap or two. There’s nothing like curling up with a good book in a lounge chair on a patio decorated with sunrays and snoozing the afternoon away.
Staycations are this year’s hot summer option for stress-free, family fun and affordable vacations. Get started planning your staycation today to experience a refreshed, revived and rejuvenated summer experience.
