For many people, summertime is their vacation time. It is the time for them to see their home in a different light, whether they decide to explore a nearby area that they’ve never visited, or stay in a local area. However, limited cash or time off makes the dream trip difficult.
The perfect alternative to this is a staycation. A staycation offers you an ideal getaway from your daily life by giving you a vacation-like experience without going too far from home. On top of that, it will cost you less time and money than the regular vacation.
The goal of a staycation is not different from a vacation as you will still get a break from your daily life whether you visit a city nearby or stay in your city. If you are planning for the perfect staycation, the following is a guide on how you can do it.
1. Figure out what you want to do
The first thing to do for you to have a great staycation is figuring out what you wish to do; that can either be a hiking adventure or a spa getaway. By figuring out what you plan to do, choosing the place you want to go to will be easy. For instance, for a hiking adventure, your perfect destination will be the woods.
2. Come up with a staycation budget
After knowing what you want to do and choosing the destination, sit down and create a budget. Just as you always create a vacation budget, you should also know how much you are willing to spend on your staycation. A staycation is not a lifetime investment; therefore, don’t go into
debt just so you can take your dream staycation.
3. Camp or rent a place
If your aim is escaping from your home for a while, then you can rent a place or go to nearby camping lodge and camp. If you happen to be in Slovenia and are looking into renting a unique vacation rental, there are plenty of options like a cozy condo in a lesser known neighborhood to modern Slovenia Estates in the heart of the city. Remember, your goal is to experience your city in a new light. Camping is also fun, and it will cost you very little money.
4. Use online resources
If you need some staycation inspiration, then make use of the online resources and apps available. These resources will offer you great ideas about places you can visit as well as discounted tickets to events and destinations that are worth visiting.
5. Be a tourist in your city
You probably don’t know every corner of your city. This is the time for you to take a tour of places you’ve never visited. That can be historical mobster tours, museum tours, or a restaurant offering delicious cuisines. All you need is to open your map and pick a destination you want to
6. Stay home
Well, your first choice will never be staying at home. However, you can still have a staycation experience by staying at home. You can make it fun by calling your friend to come and spend time with you cooking a meal they’ve always wanted to try and cook. On top of that, you can also use this time to have pizza and movie night all together. The perfect staycation experience while at home is all about pampering yourself; therefore, you can use this time to relax, take a bath, or even do a face mask.
You deserve a break once in a while from your day-to-day life. You don’t need a lifetime of savings for you to have the break from your daily routine. All you need is a staycation. It is a great and cheap option for someone looking forward to having a beak from his or her daily life. If a vacation is too big for you, use these tips and you’ll be sure to have a great staycation experience.
