A Staycation is the newest way to have the fun of a family vacation from the comfort of your own home. Not to mention the money you save on travel expenses. But a common question is, “How can I make my Staycations as enjoyable as my vacations?” Well, in addition to having your trendy plus size swimsuits, here are 5 essentials for your next Staycation that will be sure to give you some much needed ‘R and R’, as well as a more than satisfactory dose of pleasure and entertainment.
- Take a trip to your local pool.
A Staycation wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the pool. There’s nothing more soothing than kicking back in a lounge chair poolside in one of your trendy plus size swimsuits or one of your fashionable swimsuit cover ups. Your kids will enjoy playing in the water while you unwind in the sun. Even consider purchasing your own backyard pool. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant or expensive, but there’s nothing comparable to taking off that chic cover up, showing off one of your trendy tankini bathing suits, and cooling off from the hot sun by dipping your toes into your own pool, all from the comfort and serenity of your backyard.
- Go for a walk in your local park.
When it comes to relaxing on your Staycation, nothing takes your mind off of life’s stressors like walking through a park, soaking up all of the calming powers of nature. Change out of your sleek plus size swimwear, maybe throw on one of your top-of-the-line plus size sundresses, and take your family for a walk in the park. To make sure the kids have fun, bring some pieces of bread and let them do some bird feeding as you close your eyes and relax in the shade.
- Have a backyard BBQ.
There’s no better way to end a day of a family Staycation than having a backyard BBQ. Grilling together after a fantastic day of fun in the sun and poolside relaxation is a sure-fire way to bring the great food of a vacation to your Staycation. Sure going out to a restaurant is great and reminiscent of a vacation, but to make your Staycation a memorable one, making dinner with your family is the route to go, and we can assure you that the home-cooked meal will be even more delicious. Watch the glowing sunset from your backyard, have some chips and dip, throw some juicy hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill, and enjoy a delightful dinner with your family.
- Visit the local zoo.
For your kids, nothing is more amazing to them than seeing and interacting with endless exhibits of different animals. Going to the zoo is a great way to spend a day of your Staycation and is a definite way to make sure your kids aren’t bored. You can have a good time at the zoo as well; it’s another great place to relax in the sun and take your mind away from reality as you watch the monkeys jump from tree to tree, or a mother tiger care for its precious newborn. As you plan your Staycation, be sure to look out for special offers from your local zoo where kids can get in for free!
- Check out the local theater.
Whether you want to see a movie, a play, a concert or a comedy-show, go see the listings at some of your local theaters. Spend a few hours listening to your favorite artist or watching the newest blockbuster film. Look for an outdoor theater in your area to really enjoy your Staycation theater experience. Indoor or outdoor, movie or concert, whatever suits your fancy, you and your kids will be undoubtedly be able to spend quality time together enjoying the sights and sounds of the theater.
Make these ideas part of your next family Staycation to make your home getaway one to remember.
