June 02, 2020

After a tough period adhering to restrictions that have kept us mostly indoors due to the Covid-19 virus, we are all looking forward to a great Summer. 

Most people choose to travel abroad for vacation. Unfortunately, due to COVID - 19 restrictions in many countries, vacations abroad, may not be possible this year. That doesn't mean we have to miss out on our holiday fun. We can still enjoy a great summer staycation.

What is a summer staycation?

A staycation is where you enjoy your vacation at home instead of flying out to vacation spots. It gives us a chance to bond with family and friends, and explore the many fun spots in our cities.

Spending vacations at home instead of traveling can also help us save money. You will be surprised at the many places you can visit in your city with friends and family that do not cost a lot of money. Here are a few staycation ideas you can try this Summer.

  1. Visit parks

Spending time in nature is a great way to have fun as a family. If you do your research, you will find several parks in your city that you can visit. Many of these parks do not charge exorbitant entrance fees, while others offer free entrance.

Parks are the ideal place to spend your vacation days because there are many things you can do. You can hike, camp, picnic, and birdwatch, among other outdoor activities. Time outdoors in nature is also a fantastic way to recharge. If you can't visit the parks, why don't you camp outside the house and stargaze? The kids will love it!

  1. Attend local festivals

In the Summer, there are always many local events and festivals to attend. You will find music festivals, and kid's festivals, advertised in the local paper that you can attend with friends and family.

Local festivals are easy to attend because they are close to home and do not charge a lot of money. They also showcase a wide array of entertainment for everyone to enjoy and give you a chance to do activities you don't normally do. Why don't you attend a festival this holiday with your kids and make unforgettable memories? It will be fun!

  1. Have fun at home

While spending time in the house during vacation may seem boring to some people, there are many great things you can do as a family during Summer at home.

For example, you can bond with your children by helping them learn something new - new skills, new recipes, and new crafts. You can also plan parties or BBQs at your home and invite your friends and family. With such ideas at hand, having fun at home during Summer will be a breeze.

  1. Explore local restaurants and cafes

If you love food, you could spend some days of your vacation exploring local eateries in your area. Many of the restaurants and cafes in your city are quite affordable. You can also look for culinary tours that will let you explore hidden gems in your community.

This Summer, treat yourself and your family to some meals in restaurants that serve good food and do not cost an arm and a leg.  If you check the local paper, you will find lots of restaurants giving special offers to families and large groups.

  1. Be a local tourist

Lots of people are unaware of the numerous tourist spots in their cities because they always fly out to enjoy those in other places. If you visit your local tourism office, you will find lots of museums, zoos, and historic sites in your city that you can explore as a family. Buy some tickets and enjoy the best of your local places this Summer for an unforgettable time.
