Why Take a Family Staycation?

A family vacation is an important bonding experience—a time to interact in a relaxed environment, away from the busy everyday schedules of work, school and extracurricular activities.

But sometimes you don’t have the time or money to plan a week or two away from home.

Try a staycation, a vacation you take in your own town. Staycations are much less expensive than traditional vacations and can fit into the nooks and crannies of your busy life. The point is to step away from all of the “stuff” that distracts you from connecting with your kids and get into the vacation mindset, no travel required.

Taking some time to refresh and reboot with your family is priceless.

Read on for a list of staycation ideas from A to Z and choose a fun escape for your family soon.
