Summer Savings: Cheap and Fun Staycation Ideas

If you’re still recovering from the economic stresses of 2020, you may be dreaming of a tropical paradise on a pauper’s budget. Never fear, we have got some solid, thrifty, and fun ideas to help you enjoy your time off!

Camp Out

If you’re up for a road trip, pack up the car and head to cooler climes for a weekend of camping! Rent, borrow or buy your camping gear for a low-cost vacation that will help you recharge and reconnect with nature!

Bucket List Your City

If you live in or near a metropolitan area, chances are you haven’t seen even a quarter of the wonders your city has to offer. Create a bucket list of museums, galleries, restaurants, and sights you always wanted to check out and start checking off some of those boxes! Use travel sites to help you find hidden gems you never even knew you had right down the road!

Wine Tasting or Beer Gardens

Depending on where you live, chances are your state has a few famous brews or vino choices you’ve yet to explore. Make a night of it and ask a few friends to each bring their favorite local beverage. Set out some candles on the patio and enjoy a night of flavor!

Rent local

If you can’t afford a luxury vacation, check out the prices of AirBnb or hotels near you. Try for non-peak days to save extra cash and avoid the rush too! Getting out of your own space and into something a little different can help you break out of that funk!

Bring the Spa Home

Create a spa experience in your own home and pamper yourself and a few close pals! Don your coziest robes or pajamas, give each other mani-pedis and facials, pop some champagne and enjoy a luxurious day in the comfort of your own home!

Music in the Park

Spend the evening on a blanket with a loved one, listening to music and enjoying the weather at a Music in the Park event. Check your local event pages to find one near you! Pack a picnic for added romance!

Rent A Hot Rod

Rent a Hot Rod or a convertible for the night and drive around in style! You’ll get a thrill out of the experience and it won’t break the bank!

There are tons of great ways to spend your staycation without feeling like you missed out. Get creative, save some major cash, and enjoy the world around you!
