What is there to do in your city that you might not have done before?
If you’re rethinking your March Break plans or your summer cruise is in flux due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consider a staycation instead. What is there to do in your city that you might not have done before?
Here are some tips for planning a memorable staycation.
Staying close to home means you’ll save money on plane tickets, so maybe splurge a little to make the experience feel special. Treat yourself to dinner at a high-end restaurant or spring for a couple nights’ stay in a luxe hotel. You might not want to spend everything you’ve saved on the “at-home” experience, but it’s up to you. Bonus: you’ll be helping to support the hospitality industry in your community through a difficult time.
What does everyone do when they come to your city from elsewhere? Is there a museum or attraction you’ve never bothered to go to because it’s always packed with tourists? Now might be the perfect time to check it out. Often these places have reduced rates for locals, so be sure to ask about potential discounts.
Maybe you’re already an expert on your city’s history and culture, but on the other hand, maybe you haven’t heard the whole story. Take a guided tour of a local museum, historic site or government building, or take a ride on the hop-on hop-off bus that roams the downtown. You never know what you might learn!
A staycation doesn’t have to mean staying put inside the same four walls.
The options are endless to experience your town with new eyes. With a little bit of positive attitude, imagination and research, your vacation can still be an exciting adventure!
