A staycation may be a fun way to give yourself some time off without having to go too far from the comforts of the hotel or house you’re staying in. While the concept is simple (a staycation being a vacation set completely in your home or a local resort or hotel), some people ask: “How is a staycation fun? What can you do?”
Even though you’re not going abroad on some ocean spanning cruise or flying to the most exotic of destinations around the globe, a staycation can be just the thing you need to get out of your funk, refresh your perspectives and learn to appreciate the little things in life.
Go out and explore the city on foot or with a bike and find little locales and stores you can visit. Turn it into a game where you track down your itinerary for the day by taking cute or wacky photos at a specific “monument” of your choice, whether it’s a fancy cafe hidden away or the coziest bench in the park.
Go All Out
If you’re worried your staycation won’t feel like a vacation at all, why not go all out and make it the best staycation ever. It will only feel like a vacation if you make it feel like one. Give yourself some “me” time at the local spa, have a meal in the best restaurant in town and enjoy lounging around the comfiest hotel room your money can buy.
Learn a Little
Your little vacation doesn’t necessarily have to be confined to rest and relaxation only. Take the time to go to the local museum or library and expand your knowledge a little. Learn something new or ease back into a subject you forgot you were interested in before. Learning experiences are not just limited to books or displays as tours, and maybe river cruises, can be quite the experience if available.
Markets, concerts, sporting events. There’s bound to be something happening wherever it is you are. As they say: “Seek and you shall find.” Don’t wait around for something exciting to fall into your lap and look around instead. You’re sure to find something entertaining to take part in.
Take a Breather
The main purpose of a staycation is to take a break from all the stressful and complicated things happening around you. A vacation across countries may be fun, but they often have a lot of details you need to keep attention to and tiring transfers and transports that can put a damper on the adventure. Appreciate the little things and just sit back to relax.
Staycations are definitely the way to go if you want something a little simpler and closer to your budget when it comes to your days off. What are you waiting for? Stay in and have yourself a good one!
