Whether you want to have some fun with the family or escape for the day with your loved one, it’s important to pick the perfect destination. If you don’t have the time or money, consider taking a staycation day trip. Decide whether you want to relax or have an adventure and go from there.
Go On an Adventure
If you are an adrenaline junkie and always in “go mode”, an adventurous day trip may be the break from reality that you need. Since the weather is warm, the water is the perfect place to have fun. Race on the water on a speed boat or jet ski. Check to be sure your water equipment is still in good condition. If not, pick up some discount boat parts for replacement. If you’re a big swimmer, find somewhere that will allow you to go snorkeling.
Relax the Day Away
If you enjoy unwinding and taking it easy after a long week at work, enjoy a relaxing day trip. Visit any nearby hot springs for some aquatic relaxation. Cool down and soothe your soul in a salt cave. If you want to escape the hot outdoors, check in at a day spa for massages, facials and body exfoliations. Go on a yoga retreat to meditate and relieve your muscles while enjoying nature.
Get a Little Bit of Both
If you’re looking for a balance of both excitement and calmness, there are plenty that can meet your needs. The summer is the perfect time to visit the beach. You can lounge on a towel catching some rays one minute and play a game of beach volleyball the next. Wineries and breweries offer adventurous tours and indulgent tastings all in one day. Entertainment can meet a wide range of accommodations. If you want to let loose, go to a rock concert. Or you can spend a calm evening at the theater.
Whichever way you choose to spend your staycation, turn off your phone and be present to enjoy the moments.
