What do you do if you don’t have extra time or money to invest in an honest-to-goodness summer vacation? What if your family can never agree on a vacation destination? How can you keep your family happy and occupied if you stick close to home for two months in the summer?
The answer is a staycation.
Planning a staycation doesn’t mean you’re lazy and unwilling to make travel arrangements. Nor does it mean you don’t have the brainpower to come up with an interesting itinerary. On the contrary, a staycation is a thoughtful choice that more and more families are making.
First of all, a staycation saves a ton of money. There are no airplane tickets, hotel reservations, or car rentals to purchase. And there’s no need to lose sleep over what to pack! In fact, the trickiest part of a “home vacation” may be getting your family on board with the idea. To that end, here are 10 clever staycation ideas to kick off the summer.
