Have you ever gone on a vacation, and instead of relaxing, you cram as much as you can into a specific timeframe? So when you return home, you are so tired you need a vacation from your vacation! Planning a vacation in a foreign land or even just a different state is enough to stress anyone out, but living in a historical area is enough reason alone to plan a “Staycation.” It is easy to take the area you live in for granted since you encounter it on a day-to-day basis, but if you stop and do some research on visitation spots in your area, you can plan a day trip and be home in time for dinner. Just here in Richmond, Virginia alone, there is enough to visit and sites to see to plan multiple staycations!
If you don’t live in an area rich with historical landmarks, you still have options. Instead of researching a restaurant that fits your out-of-town vacation budget while on an expensive vacation, you can plan a feast at home or visit the newest local restaurant to show support and to witness first hand what the hype is all about. Not only will you save money on travel costs, but you save time and frustration since you are acquainted with the area- so no maps required! Next time you want to impress your family with a great vacation, opt for a staycation and relax!
