Have you ever thought of planning a staycation? But then were like – what’s the point in it?

Well, who doesn’t like a vacation. However, limited time off or cash in the vacation fund can make a dream trip difficult.

A perfect alternative to that is STAYCATION, where you have a vacation like experience without going too far from home. Whether you take it in your own city or a nearby one, the goal of a staycation is same as vacation.

If you are looking for ideas on how to plan the perfect staycation, here are 5 ways to do it!

Schedule it - Mark your calenders

The key to making any staycation successful is to approach it like any other vacation. Plan it and block your calendars.

The next important element of any staycation is booking your stay. If you have been reading reviews about a famous hotel in your city, then this is the right time to treat yourself with a stay there.

If you want a more unique experience, then you check out AirBnB‘s in your city.

Become a tourist in your own city

Staycation finds

Its time to experience your city in a quirky way. I believe one can never ever experience their city totally. There is always a hidden spot or a new attraction that can catch your eye.

During your staycation you can experience those offbeat spots and learn a little more history about your city.

Try a new restaurant

This is the perfect time to explore that new restaurant you have been eyeing for the longest time!

Grab a drink at a different place and go for a coffee on the other side of town! This is the perfect time to enjoy the delicacies your city has to offer!

Disconnect from social media or any from other work calls

This is the best time to disconnect from social media and relax. Put all your work on hold! Tell your co-workers, you’ll be away!

Make an all out effort to embrace the moments and go off the grid!

So there you go, my tips for a perfect staycation!

  1. For someone like me who loves spending some time in the hotel itself on vacations to enjoy the property and the ambience, staycation is a great alternative.

  2. I liked the point of becoming tourist in your own city! I had been on city walks before, like one I did in Jama Masjid & Old Delhi streets. I was mesmerized! It felt so good to know the things that only a local residence can tell.

    1. Yes! The insights locals give are so enriching! I haven’t taken walking tours around the city, but would love to explore that option.
