2020 has been a challenging year for travelers and much of the same promises to be true in 2021. That doesn’t make it impossible for us to go on and enjoy vacations, however, as we have learned to modify what we do.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has made it hard, if not impossible, to travel internationally or long distances, travelers have begun to enjoy their escapes closer to home than ever.
This can be described under a term that has an interesting, and often incorrect, connotation: “staycationing”.
When many people think about staycations, they think about staying in their homes and enjoying their vacation time without going anywhere. That doesn’t have to be the case, though!
Staycations can also be all about staying local with your travels and not going far away. Instead of flying across the continent to visit a major city, for example, staycationing can be about driving an hour away to a national park that you haven’t explored before or a charming small town.
The possibilities are endless!
So, why not try an alternative staycation this year or next? You don’t have to be at home, but staying close to it offers all kinds of advantages that just can’t be beaten.
