How to Plan the Perfect Stay-cation This Summer
Vacations aren’t always all they’re cracked up to be. From spending hours planning and making reservations to long drives or plane rides, all too often we come home from our holidays exhausted. If you want a vacation this year that focuses 100% on relaxation, then a stay-cation may be the answer. This popular new trend means ditching traditional travel plans in favour of staying home and investing your money instead into your property.
There are many ways you can invest in your enjoyment of your home. Here are some of the best ways to guarantee an amazing stay-cation this year.
Invest in a Spa
Relaxation is one of the most important components to a successful vacation. If you want to invest in your enjoyment of your home, you can’t do better than a spa. A hot tub offers you many hours of relaxation both on your stay-cation and year-round.
With a hot tub just outside your patio door, you can be in the water as often as you want on your vacation. From early-morning soaks to starlit dips, there’s no wrong time to hit the hot tub. You can plan romantic date nights with your honey, spa days with your daughter or friend or even use it as your own personal masseuse after a workout.
Consider a Fire Pit
Summer vacation is a great time for campfires. If you don’t want to build your own campfire area — because that is a lot of work — consider investing in a store-bought wood-burning unit. If you have more money to spend, a gas-run fire pit is both beautiful and convenient.
Evenings can be spent sitting around the fire chatting, telling stories or roasting marshmallows. If you have kids, they’ll love making s’mores treats with their ooey gooey fire-roasted marshmallows.
It’s also a great way to spend time with your spouse or significant other. Whether you curl up together on a lounger and watch the flames or cuddle up on a blanket on the ground, it’s a wonderful time to catch up, reminisce or plan for the future.
Have an Outdoor Eating Area
Spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes definitely isn’t conducive to a relaxing vacation. By having an outdoor cooking and eating area, you can eliminate all of the pots and pans and have more time to enjoy with your family.
Before your stay-cation starts, hit the store and stock up on lots of fresh produce and grill-friendly food. Next, make sure your outdoor eating area has a convenient food-prep space next to your barbecue. This makes outdoor cooking much easier and more convenient. Cooking and eating outdoors not only keeps your kitchen clean, it’s a really relaxing and satisfying experience.
Focus on You
Think about what you really want to do on your stay-cation. Do you want to work on your suntan? Do you want to catch up on your reading? Do you want to explore your own community?
Whatever it is, make that the priority during your vacation at home and ignore unessential chores. This is your time to have fun and relax.
