Taking a Summer Staycation

Taking a Summer Staycation

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost to an end and back-to-school time is on the way. The approaching end of summer signifies a time when many families will try to fit in a vacation or more family time together. Sometimes taking a vacation with your family can be challenging for a variety of reasons, so try taking a staycation instead. Here are some benefits of enjoying a family break close to home.

Explore your home turf. A vacation close to home gives you an opportunity to check out all the fun and unique places that the Piedmont Triad has to offer that you may not normally get to experience. Check out Piedmont Parent for some activity ideas!

It’s more relaxing. Staying close to home means you do not have to experience the stress that can come with traffic, airport lines, or kids adjusting to new sleeping situations.

It’s easier on the wallet. The great thing about a staycation is that there are no costs associated with gas, air travel, or hotels to account for. Day trips and local activities are often less expensive (or free!) and just as enjoyable.

More time together. Staying close to home means you can eliminate the time spent traveling and planning, giving you more time to spend as a family. You can explore a new city, park, museum, or town together that much easier!
