According to surveys, the average American vacation costs around $1,100 per person and that is doing just the bare minimum. A family of four could spend the same amount in one week that they would spend in an entire month for their household expenses. That’s why many people are turning towards the idea of the staycation. This is where you stay home for your vacation but have just as much fun. The goal to successful staycation is to stop work just as you would on a regular vacation. That means no returning phone calls, texts or emails. Your job can survive without you for the week. As for what you’ll do, the possibilities are unlimited. Consider these few:
Take a Day Trip
You could go two hours in any direction from Albany and find yourself in some amazing places. Taking a day trip has the same fun of a road trip but without the hassle of checking in and out of the hotel. You could head in a different direction every day of your staycation and still have plenty of time left over to explore things right in your own neighborhood.
Try a New Restaurant
When you go on vacation in a new city, you are literally trying a new restaurant every time you go out. You should take that same approach for your staycation. There are probably at least a dozen places that you’ve always wanted to try. Now you can. Keep in mind that trying to new restaurant doesn’t mean dressing up and going out. Most restaurants offer take out. Enjoy the food in the comforts of your home watching a great movie.
Take In a Show
Not every live performance has to be a Broadway show with $100 ticket. There are plenty of local theater companies who do amazing work all throughout the summer. Where do you think all the performers from Broadway go when they don’t get a job? There are also a lot of free outdoor concerts around Albany that are great way to spend an evening.
