5 Awesome Staycation Ideas

May 13, 2019

See the Local Sights  

Find out what tourists do in your town. Chances are you haven’t seen everything your town has to offer. Take a day to put on your tourist hat on and see a new perspective on your area. Not only is it fun for the whole family, but it can also be informative as well. And with the sights being so close to home, you don’t have to bother with the typical headaches of a vacation. You even know the best places to grab a quick bite to eat after being out on the town.

Backyard Waterpark 

Bring the waterpark to you. Going on a family outing to the nearest waterpark involves so much planning from packing lunches and sunscreens to buying the entrance tickets. Have a fun-filled getaway in the comfort of your backyard by renting a waterslide for the day and can instead enjoy your staycation.

Picnic in the Park 

Have a picnic in the park. Getting out of the house is always good but it doesn’t have to break the bank. Exploring a new park near your house and bringing a picnic lunch has all of the excitement of a fancy vacation but none of the cost. Even returning to a tried and true park still has a big appeal for your kids. They might even run into some of their friends while out and about. They can run around, and enjoy their favorite lunch while you get to relax in a park that’s close to your house. It’s hard to beat how fun and convenient a picnic in the park can be. 

Board Game Tournament 

Plan a game tournament. Get a bracket going for your family and get gaming! Board games bring the whole family together and you’ll finally settle who is really the best at monopoly in the house. Everyone can pick the game they love to play and y’all can spend all day playing through them once and returning to the ones you had the most fun with. 

Movie Marathon 

Movie marathon!!! Have every member of your family pick their favorite movie that everyone will enjoy and get watching. Or if there’s a classic movie you’ve been waiting to share with your kids, this is a great time to do so. With streaming in most households, it have never been easier to find that movie from the late 80’s that you haven’t seen since. Load up on snacks (especially popcorn!) and fun things to eat so you don’t have to leave the house the whole time. Having a movie marathon is an easy way to cozy up on the couch, kick your feet up and relax together as a family.
