Enjoy Your Own Fine Dining Experience

One of the biggest drawbacks of being at home for a staycation is not having the opportunity to eat out and enjoy decadent meals. Curb your fine dining withdrawals by putting on a fancy dinner for yourself. Have the kids decorate the dining room and set the table, put on your favorite music, get dressed up as if you were going out, and enjoy a delicious dinner with those who matter most! Many fancy meals that may seem daunting to make are much more simple than they appear.

Have a Movie Night

Who needs an expensive and busy theater when you have a comfortable couch and living room all to yourself? Dim the lights, make some popcorn, pick out one of your favorite movies, and enjoy! Plus, when the movie is over, no one will force you to leave. Just put on another great film and enjoy more time in your private home theater.

Put Up a Family Art Gallery

Staycations provide the perfect time to practice and perfect your artistic skills! Whether you are painting, sculpting, drawing, or just putting random items together (what is modern art other than this anyways?), your family is sure to stay entertained for hours while creating beautiful pieces of art. Once your artwork is complete, dedicate an area of your house to put your creations on display so that they can be enjoyed for days to come.

Perfect the Art of the Nap

Vacations give us a break from the status quo, rest, and relaxation. Why should staycations be any different? Relaxing at home with little responsibility is the ideal time to perfect the art of the nap.

There are many different types of naps and it is important to know which one works best for you. Regularly napping has also been linked to numerous health benefits such as reduced blood pressure and improved memory. So don’t forget to make a midday nap part of your staycation plans!
