Where is the rule that says you have to visit a fancy resort to have a great vacation?
Staycations are growing in popularity, with may people choosing to enjoy their time off at home and skip the hassle (and sometimes the cost) of a traditional vacation. And believe it or not, staycations can be every bit as relaxing and fun.
If you’re interested in managing expenses while still enjoying your time away from work, start planning a staycation. This is a budget-friendly alternative to an expensive flight, hotel and all the other costs of taking a traditional vacation.
Here are just a handful of ways you can make the most of your staycation while still saving money:
Become a sightseer in your own city.
Check out free local events.
Have a spa day.
Take a food tour of your city.
Spend a night at the local fancy hotel.
In addition to these ideas, nothing beats a nice bike ride, reading that book you’ve been planning to read for months now, or spending every night at the movies. There is no right or wrong way to have a great staycation. As long as you take the time to unwind, and enjoy your city with the mindset of a tourist you’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds: relaxed time partnered with manageable expenses.
