Many people are finding that the most relaxing vacation are staycations. A staycation is a key piece of jargon these days. As you probably guessed, it’s a hybrid of the words ‘stay’ and ‘vacation.' According to the Urban Dictionary a staycation is “a vacation, which involves staying where you are, or staying close to home, usually within a 100 mile radius.”

When you stage a small-scale local adventure you save money, support your local economy and eliminate the hassle and stress of long-distance travel. From hiking, kayaking or paddle-boarding at nearby parks to indulging in week long wellness experiences, a staycation — like any getaway — can be as active or leisurely as you desire. It just takes a little planning, an open-minded attitude and a sense of adventure.
