Take a break, recharge your energy, and save money by enjoying a staycation.
As we enter the fall season and the start of the 2023/24 school year, it’s important to acknowledge that many of us may be feeling a bit down due to high interest rates and inflation. In 2023, you may have found yourself torn between creating new vacation memories and sticking to a tight budget. If this was the case for you, you’re not alone.
If you’re feeling blue because you didn’t get the chance to travel or go on a road trip this year, have you considered planning a staycation? Being a tourist in your own town can give you the opportunity to relax and recharge without breaking the bank.
According to NerdWallet, “Even though the days of social distancing are behind us, concerns about inflation, air travel issues, and gas prices make a staycation just as appealing in 2023.” A staycation is more than just a cheaper alternative to traveling.
It allows you to reconnect with your surroundings without the stress of planning a trip. By staying local, you can plan a staycation at any time during the year, depending on what works best for you and your family. Additionally, fall and winter can be a great time to explore popular destinations in your area without the crowds that come with the summer season.
