Laura McKenzie - Plan a Staycation




• What can you do when you want to take a vacation but you don't have a lot of money?
– Vacation does not mean travel. Vacation means taking a break from your normal work or routine.

 

– Staycations are relaxing at home instead of in a hotel.



• Reasons to staycation are:
– To Relax: Vacationers often feel they have to wear themselves out.

– To save money- you save on airfares, hotels and even restaurants!

– Save time packing and traveling!


For instance, New York City has expensive hotels so if you're a local take advantage of the shark boat or the Empire State building.



• Keep in mind there are risks to staycations too:
– Temptations for impulse spending

– Temptation to work

– Temptation to clean

– Temptation to stay in routine and not take day trips.



• Do's and Don'ts for planning a Staycation:
– Do's - Make plans, you don't want to feel like you didn't do anything or wasted time.

– Visit nearby museums, theme parks, wineries that you wouldn't normally go too.

– Don'ts - don't use the entire time to clean closets or garages. You wouldn't normally clean on vacation!



• What if your town doesn't have anything to do?
– A near-cation is an idea: driving somewhere nearby for a weekend or a couple of days so you don't have to fly anywhere.



What if you only have a day off?
– Plan a Daycation. A daycations means taking a day off to do something fun like a theme park or a picnic. Many people live right by the beach and never go!
