We all know what a vacation is, but what’s a staycation? A staycation is a vacation in your hometown and sometimes even in your own house. You can do all the touristy things like visit museums and beaches that you don’t normally frequent. Check out these fun staycation tips to help you make vacation where you are.
Just because you’re in your own town doesn’t mean you should go about your regular life. One of our best staycation tips is don’t allow work to creep in. You might consider not even telling work people that you’re in town. Make sure you are entirely off the clock. Take care of any regular tasks in advance—no grocery stores or lawn mowing this week. Consider a babysitter for the kids or a dog-walker for Spot. Then sleep in and stay up late. It’s your vacation, after all!
Consider what you love about hotels. Clean sheets. Housekeeping. Room service. Pools. So, you probably can’t quickly add a pool to your home, but Staycation Tips 101 says bring other hotel amenities to your front door. Hire a housekeeper at the beginning of your staycation to get your home in hotel shape and have them come in again during your staycation. Make sure your sheets and towels are clean and ready for use. Have take-out delivered. Keep a bottle of champagne in your fridge. Maybe even arrange for a box of fancy chocolates to arrive on your doorstep. Or if camping is more your speed, pitch your tent in the yard and cook hot dogs and s’mores over the firepit.
Rent a convertible and experience your own city in style! What better way to change your perspective than with the top down and wind in your hair (or lack of hair—we’re not judging). Drive along your local lakes or rivers. Explore new neighborhoods. Turn heads!
When you take a traditional vacation, you put aside money. Well, a staycation is no different. Luckily, you don’t have travel expenses, so a modest budget can go a long way. Having a budget that’s more than you would spend on a regular day helps you embrace the travel spirit in your own town. So, when the kids want that souvenir at the museum, you can say yes. And you can order the filet mignon at dinner because, hey, it’s staycation! If you want to save even more, look for travel packages or other deals for your city. Or take advantage of matinees or lunches you don’t usually attend because you’re working. Can’t get enough thrifty travel tips? Check out more here.
When you visit a new city on a vacation, you usually make it a point to see all the sights. On a staycation, make sure to check out your hometown sights. Search your city on a travel site like Lonely Planet or Fodor’s. Consider buying yourself a guidebook. Then take the time to see the art museums, zoos, and other attractions. Don’t hold back! Snap silly tourist pictures across the city. You can do the things you don’t usually do because they’re too expensive or too touristy…and that’s the whole point.
