Plan a Staycation!
We are BIG advocates of Staycations. For the obvious reason, it’s cheap and we don’t have to find a pet sitter.
I thought I would run down a few idea’s to make your staycation the best!
1. Research your area for things to try / do. For example my area has a Kayak rental place on the Haw River that’s affordable and hours of fun! We did this last year, packed a picnic and hit the river.
2. We live close to Lake Jordan which has beaches. This is free and something fun on a warm day.
3. We are actually 1.5 hour drive from the Carolina Coast. Planning a day trip to the ocean is low cost and tons of fun. Pack a picnic and prepare to relax for a day.
4. We love going to the hidden beaver pond to fish and have a picnic.
If you haven’t noticed there is a theme with us……outdoors and picnics.
The key here is to find something you and your significant enjoy doing. If you enjoy different things, then plan one day for his/her activity and one day for your activity. Compromise is key. Also, utilize google! You may find a local blogger (like me) who has reviewed fun things to do in your area. Plus check your local town’s website for an event calendar.
Beach / Swimming
General Exploring [that restaurant everyone has been talking about]
Make sure you plan at least 1 activity or you may find you have spent the whole weekend on the couch.
For Memorial Day Weekend we are planning a Kayak trip, Fishing, and an outdoor movie with a few friends.
