There is no denying that vacationing can be expensive. For some, a vacation could mean hundreds of dollars spent on airfare, hotels, food and other accommodations, not to mention days lost of work.
Many of us, including myself (a college student) just can't afford to fly off somewhere for a week, even if I have all summer to do it. Instead of spending lots of dough on far-away travel, my friends and I have decided to try and fill our summer with daycations, vacations lasting only a day.
Maybe one day we’ll wake up early and drive four hours to Boston and come home late, or maybe another day we’ll drive just an hour to get to a nicer beach. The only money we’d have to spend would be for gas or a bus, food and maybe a little shopping.
Once I was able to stop thinking about the far-away places I really wanted to go to (California, Vegas, London, Paris… sigh) I was able to realize all of the cool places not too far from where I live that I could take advantage of as a mini-vacation.
Have you ever taken a daycation? What attracts you close to where you live? Where would you daycation this summer?
