A staycation, or holistay, is nothing more or less than a relaxing and rejuvenating period of time off at home. It is a fantastic way to celebrate life with friends and family while reducing some of the stress of travel.
There is no one “right way” to do a staycation. Just as a traditional travel vacation can be relaxing or adventurous, domestic or international, tightly scheduled or free-flowing, each staycation is unique, too.
A period like this could include movie marathons, a bit of intentional couch-potato time, games and activities with the family, and just about anything you might think of that you usually struggle to find time for during work and school times.
If you’re looking for a staycation without too much “stay,“ you could also consider a bit of hyper-local travel. One fun thing about a vacation to a new place is all the opportunities to see and do new things.
One of the most fantastic things about this type of time off is that most of these things require little to no planning or commitment. That means you can mix and match, try different things on different days.
