Take a Summer Vacation at Home


Summer is coming to a close, but it’s not too late to take a vacation.  Some people don’t really want to go out of town, though.  They either don’t like to travel or just don’t want to spend the money that a true out of town vacation takes.  If you want a vacation but don’t want to go out of town, why not take some time off work and stay at home?  A stay-cation, as it’s called, is a vacation spent entirely at home.  While it’s not an exotic getaway, it can be the relaxing, re-energizing vacation you need.

Some people just take a week off and do absolutely nothing!  They watch TV, go out to lunch and a movie, catch up on magazines or books…basically, they rest and relax.  Sure, they might do a little housework, but for the most part, they veg out, sleep in, and pretend work doesn’t exist.  Some even turn off the phone so they’re not disturbed and don’t read their email.

On the other hand, some people spend their at-home vacation catching up on chores and things they’ve been meaning to do but just haven’t had the time for, like doing some home repairs or projects.  Some wouldn’t really call that a vacation, but others love doing this type of stuff, and for them, it’s a lot of fun.  Plus, it’s not always easy to find time to do these types of chores, so sometimes a vacation at home is the only way to get them done.

Don’t want to take a whole week off?  You could take a few days off at the end of the week so you can have an extended weekend.  Some people might use this time to take a mini-vacation, while others just like to stay at home.  If you have family nearby, you could go visit them.  You could also go to your local zoo, spend some time at a museum checking out the new exhibits, or returning to a local attraction you haven’t visited recently.
