We’re pretty lucky to live in a place where others come on vacation and some Florida cities have made a list of the best in America for a staycation.
In recent years, the trend of staycations has been on the rise. It’s a great way to relax and recharge without the hassle of traveling. And as prices keep going up, staycations offer affordable ways to take a break from the stress of everyday life.
Staycations are also much more convenient than traditional vacations. Especially with little kids or a bunch of kids, you won’t have to worry about packing and impatience at the airport. Or in the instance of Home Alone, leaving one behind. You can enjoy your vacation at your own pace, without feeling rushed. And, of course, if you don’t go far, you’ll have the comfort of your own home to return to.
If you’re looking for ways to make your staycation feel like a real vacation, consider staying at a hotel or renting a vacation home. Then you’ll have the excitement of a new environment, while still enjoying the comfort of a familiar location. You can also try new restaurants and cafes, visit tourist attractions, or explore local parks and trails.
