It's summertime and the weather is fine, and many of us have vacationing on our minds. With gas prices soaring to astronomical heights the road trip is becoming harder and harder to budget for, therefore it’s becoming more necessary to explore other options for financially friendly family fun. From this need the idea of the “staycation” was born. A staycation combines the idea of seeing new and exciting (or old, yet exciting) venues all while staying in or near your home. Here are ten staycation ideas for you and your family to try this summer:

Ten Staycation Ideas

1. Find an inexpensive hotel (use internet search engines) and spend the night (enjoy the pool or hot tub)

2. Play a round of mini golf

3. Go to the zoo

4. Visit the farmer’s market and prepare a family meal with the items that you purchase

5. Take a historical tour of your city/tour your city’s capitol building

6. Set up a tent in your backyard and have a slumber party

7. Visit an aquarium

8. Go to a water park

9. Go for a family bike ride

10. Go to a science or space museum

No matter what you choose, a well-planned staycation could be just what your family needs to enjoy these hot sunny summer days, and keep restless summer children happily entertained.
