Everyone in the family looks forward to time off and traveling in the Spring or Summer. But sometimes life gets in the way, and staying home seems like the better choice. Here are our Top 7 Tips for a great Staycation in 2020.
Tip 1: Planning is Everything
As you get ready for your staycation, preparation is everything. Don’t wait until your first day off to create your wish list of what to do (or what not to do). Do create your own plan. Maybe not a specific day-by-day schedule, but at least a list that you discuss with your family before. It reduces the stress by a whole lot, and you may be surprised by all of the wonderful ideas you come up with!
Tip 2: Pick fun Recipes to Cook or Bake with your Family
When was the last time you spent quality time in your kitchen with your kids or spouse without the pressure of an upcoming event like Thanksgiving? This time around, nobody is there to judge or critique, and all the spoils are just for you. Best of all, you don’t even have to clean up the kitchen right away! There are lots of fun baking and cooking recipes to try.
Tip 3: Plan Days with Family and Friends
Vacationing at home doesn’t have to mean you have to be alone. Check with your family and friends nearby, and plan a day of exploring and adventuring with them. That fun couple at your kids’ basketball games that you always wanted to hang out with? The in-laws that you could have a better relationship with if you spent more quality time with them? Here is your chance: Pick a day and an activity to do together, and you will see the wonderful memories you can create together.
