I am currently in a travel lull. I am saving up money for a few amazing trips I have planned for next year so I have to be careful about taking a vacation for the rest of the year. That’s where a Staycation comes in.
Here are some great tips on How to Plan the Perfect Staycation!
What is a staycation?
A Staycation is a trip that you can take in your hometown or a nearby city to get away and relax without flying to a new country.
But like any trip you take, you will still need to plan a budget for your Staycation. You don’t want to spend more than intended and be disappointed.
Why you should take a staycation
You don’t have much time or money for traveling at the moment
Check out my post “How to Save Money for Traveling”
Have a more relaxed vacation
It help’s you save more money for another trip coming up (fewer travel costs)
An Airbnb is an affordable option for a quick getaway
How to plan the perfect staycation
What is the reason for your staycation? Relaxation, partying, rejuvenation? Once you can decide the reason for your staycation, you can plan out your itinerary.
Pick a town/city near you that you haven’t spent much time at or you have never been to. If you don’t have any idea where to begin, just check out google maps and see what you can find.
Wellness and health spa
A weekend camping
Check out Groupon and see what kind of deals they are having right now
Check out new restaurants in the city you’re staying
Find a cheap BUT good place near the beach
Do touristy things in your city/the city you’re visiting
Don’t forget to take a lot of fun travel photos (just like you were on a regular vacation!)
Take a river/lake cruise in/around your city
Clue me in!
