A great way to save on vacations all year long is going on a “staycation.” A staycation is when you stay in your own town or somewhere closeby to have your family vacation. This cuts costs by eliminating the need for expensive airline tickets and hotel stays. Plus, you get to sleep in your own, comfortable bed! Staycations can also be quick overnights that don’t require extensive stays at a hotel or resort.
Visit local museums
Go to the movies or a play
Visit a nearby zoo, aquarium, or amusement park
Rent a boat or other water sports items
Take a hike or bike ride
Go to a sporting event
Go mini golfing, go karting or other fun things you would do on vacation
Eat out and try some new places
The most important part is to RELAX just like you are on vacation. Let chores go for the week, put away the computer, and put down the phone! Take time to reconnect with your kids and spouse so you can laugh and talk and create memories! Be sure to get the camera out and document all the fun you have!
