We live in a beautiful vacation area, and it is hard to believe we leave this place to go on vacation elsewhere. My wife and I recently enjoyed a short weekend off in our area (some call this a "Staycation"). I suspect we have taken many of these "Staycations" over the years, just exploring the beautiful nooks and crannies of our own beautiful place we call home.
Staycations are likely popular these days, since the economy is so bad. One of the benefits of a "Staycation" is that they do not cost as much as a full blown vacation, and you likely know better how to save money in your own locale. Most folks will have quite a long list of things to do or see in their particular area that they have overlooked or not had time to see or do. I know for certain it is that way for us.
Another benefit is they usually are more restful than a standard vacation, since travel time is usually less. I know I can think of plenty of vacations where we were physically drained afterwards (and sometimes financially drained).
Next time you need a break, try a "Staycation", to reenergize your spirit.
As a Home Inspector in Hilton Head Island, SC, I get to see many beautiful homes and settings in our locale, but often I find myself thinking that I just have to go back and explore these areas a little more. These are the ideas for "Staycations".
Happy planning, what are you waiting for? Plan your next "Staycation" now.
