staycation vs vacation - your thoughts

Jump to last reply

We are contemplating our first staycation, a short week that would have been spent driving to a nearby 'tourist town' and staying at rural accommodation soaking up the 'serenity' and paying alot to do nothing in the wide open spaces.

So DH has come up with an alternative....our first staycation.
As any working family it is rare for us to dine out (multi-course) at a restaurant, take in a movie (at the movies - not DVD) or visit a local attraction - without visiting relatives/friends to use as an excuse!

So that is our plan for our week off...not to drive hours up the road to relax but to relax, with a twist in our home town and support our own tourism industry....

fodorians' thoughts please...........

have you had a staycation?

do you think a staycation 'trend' would take away income from other tourism spots??

do you think a staycation is a fancy word for - haven't saved up enough to travel overseas?

responses welcome.......
