People who engage in staycations usually do it wrong.
Being home is considered the primary destination even though staycation refers to playing tourist in your home city, not sequestration. A great many staycationers rarely bask in the rarefied splendor and sublime satisfaction of staying home and yet getting out of their comfort zone. People on staycations typically draft up lists of chores involving house cleaning, shelf building, garage emptying or room renovating. Won’t that be nice to clean, labor, haggle and go shopping at the hardware store. Maybe this is better than going to the office, factory, mall or wherever you work, but it ain’t a vacation. Treat yourself to a spa. It’s easy to find one just search google for massage near me.
Schedule a handful of things you’ve always wanted to do (or do again). But a little planning is required. For instance, the free docent-led tours at the St. Louis Art Museum begin weekdays at 10:30 a.m. and the museum is closed on Monday. You don’t have to go all type-A on your vacation but you should sketch things out so that you don’t miss out. Don’t wait until your staycation to plan. You want to jump into relaxation on day one. And just like a “real” vacation, planning builds excitement and creates a treasure trail of upcoming events to look forward to.A staycation is a great opportunity to save money, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t spend any money. Develop a vacation budget just like you would traveling out of town. Splurge on a lunch, go out for breakfast, shop for souvenirs.
