Have a Summer Vacation at Home


Are you thinking about taking a summer vacation but don’t really want to put in the time, money, and energy it takes to actually go out of town and do something?  Well, stay-cations, or vacations one spends at home, have become more popular in recent years.  You can take off a week of work and just relax at home!  If you want to take a stay-cation, here are a few ideas.

Some people just take a week off and do absolutely nothing!  They watch TV, go out to lunch and a movie, catch up on magazines or books…basically, they rest and relax.  On the other hand, some people spend this vacation catching up on chores and things they’ve been meaning to do but just haven’t had the time for, like going some home repairs or projects.  It is a vacation?  Some would say no, but others love doing this type of stuff, and for them, it’s a lot of fun.

Don’t want to take a whole week off?  You could take a few days off at the end of the week so you can have an extended weekend.  Some people might use this time to take a mini-vacation, while others just like to stay at home.  If you have family nearby, you could go visit them.  You could also go to your local zoo, spend some time at a museum checking out the new exhibits, or returning to a local attraction you haven’t visited recently.
