Maybe you don’t have the budget to embark on an extensive adventure or perhaps you just don’t have the time to get away from the office. Either way, a staycation lets you kick back and relax without having to pack your bags and book a flight. You might want some time to yourself or you might be looking to spend some time with your loved ones; on a staycation, anything goes!
Here are some great ideas for what to do on a staycation:
Have A Spa Day
Planning a little at-home pampering is a great opportunity to relax and unwind. You can fire up the jets in your soaker tub or hot tub and even add some bubbles. Maybe grab some products ahead of time to do your own hair, skin or nail treatments. Bypassing a trip to a high-end, high-priced spa doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a little R&R in your own at-home spa!
This idea is great especially if the kids are involved. You can pitch a tent in the backyard, grill hot dogs, make s’mores and sit around your own fire pit. Plus, it’s much more convenient than adventure camping because you can easily access the conveniences of your own bathroom and kitchen if need be. Not to mention, you don’t have to pay a fee to enjoy the outdoors and camp in your own backyard.
Plan a New Dining Experience
You may have always wanted to travel to Maine for their lobster or maybe New Orleans for their crawfish. If you can’t hop on a plane to explore new cuisines, the internet now makes it easier than ever to have all kinds of exotic foods shipped right to your door within 24 hours. Exploring new cuisines can all be done from the comfort of your own home!
Enjoy a Movie Or Book Marathon
Especially enjoyable on chilly days and nights, you can curl up on your couch with some books you’ve been wanting to dive into or some of your favorite movies. You can order in for dinner and simply relax.
You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars towards a getaway in order to relax and unwind. If you’re wondering what to do on a staycation, rack your brain and think of all the things you already love to do.
