You don’t need an expensive getaway to enjoy the relaxing and exciting benefits of a vacation. Instead, consider taking a summer “staycation”!
Have a Pool Party. Power down your electronics, mix up a cool lemonade, and kick back in the water with a good book. If you don’t have your own pool, set a time to join friends at a local pool or waterpark. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Throw a Block Party. Get to know your neighbors by throwing a barbecue block party. It’s affordable fun, too! Fire up your grill, provide cold beverages and ask the neighbors to bring some dishes to share.
Go Camping– in the backyard. Grab the kids (or grandkids), pitch a tent, make some S’mores, share scary stories and gaze at the stars, all in the comfort of your own backyard. In case of a rain shower, you’re only steps away from your own bed.
Explore the City. Enter the name of your town into your favorite search engine and find local events, festivals, exhibits, and museums. Don’t wait to have an out-of-town company in order to discover the benefits of where you live. Rediscover why tourists visit your city. (If your town doesn’t have much going on, get involved and make it happen for next year!)
A great city and neighborhood is one of the main attractions for new residents and renters.
