Staycation



I've been hearing a lot of people talk about "Staycations" lately. It's basically a vacation but rather than go somewhere and stay in a hotel, you sleep at home and go to places that are within driving distance.
This is a new and exciting concept to me. Not because I go on vacation all the time.. quite the opposite actually. Simply because we are a young family and don't have the extra money for an actual vacation. The "staycation" brings a whole new array of possibilities to the table.
So for those of you who are feeling the pinch from the economy, I encourage you to look a little closer and embrace the "Staycation!"
(We took a "staycation" to Temple, Tx. We checked out the Train Museum and park!)

I think that's a wonderful idea! I guess I've been kind of doing that each weekend. Since I stopped working, I do have time on my hands, so I've taken to discovering everything my area has to offer. It's definitely a staycation within my budget! Plus I appreciate my area a lot more!

Ya, it's funny how we're almost blind to the things that are closest until we're forced to see them! LoL This really has been an eye opening experience for me! :)

I know what you mean! When I started reading the Quebec tourism website, I was like "we have THAT here?"

This is a terrific idea. How often do we just not visit what everyone else would visit if they were new to our area?
