Having a staycation can be done at a moment’s notice and it can give you greater control when it comes to keeping yourself and your loved ones safe.
This is just the tip of the iceberg! You can make it as intimate or as large as you want to with the people you love or you can choose to let it be your personal time for you- you decide! What’s even better is that you should not let it include work and it can also be done on a low budget!

What does a staycation in your community mean?
As mentioned a staycation can also be enjoyed in your community. If you are the adventurous type or one who loves exploring can you imagine what you can do? It can be downtime to visit nearby places you will enjoy or even a chance to play tourist in your town. Use the time to visit places you don’t often visit and places that will allow opportunities for sight-seeing, relaxation and fun! It may be a park or perhaps even the beach. Dress up, go out and have fun!
How possible is having a staycation in the country where you live?
A staycation in the country where you live can mean going on a day trip and exploring. It can range from one day to a couple of days and can include several different leisurely activities. If your plans include being away from home, decide on a place that is affordable but also one that offers a warm and inviting ambience. Having a staycation in your country allows you to visit various places of interest and it also allows you to participate in various activities that you may not have had the time to try.
Even more interesting is letting it be an opportunity where you can try events that you may not have ordinarily thought of doing.
With all of these factors being mentioned certainly you can see how a staycation in the midst of a pandemic is possible. Whether you are on a budget or you are alone or have company, you can create the ultimate staycation and enjoy the downtime you so urgently need! It is yours for the taking so have fun!
