    Great ideas! We also like havjng a chunk of time to go geocaching! It’s fun to take a day and explore and do this modern day treasure hunt around your own town!

  2. Oh I better remember to do that. “Think of all the things you love leaving behind when you go on vacation: Errands, schlepping kids to and fro? Whatever is on that list – DON’T do it while on staycation!”. What a great idea for staycation.

      Super easy to do…slip back into the regular routine, but so worth leaving it behind for a few days to really enjoy each other and be tourists in your own backyard!

  3. Oh I love this!! With my husband so busy at work, Staycations are sometimes all we can do, but I still love them! These are great tips! Thanks for sharing!!

      Relaxation – whenever and wherever is great for the soul! Glad you are taking the time to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!

    Such a wonderful list! I’ve never had enough discipline for a staycation, but really would love to try it. I think I would splurge on hiring a cleaning service to clean our house everyday while we’re out being tourists. 🙂

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Maybe not every day but how about at the end of your staycation? Then you could have a nice and clean house to resume ‘regular’ life!

    I love staycations but somehow cleaning always interferes lol Sometimes I need a staycation just to organize and clean sadly.

    I could use a staycation! I have been putting in so much time on my blog, that I could use a break. My problem is pretty much all of the “do not make these mistakes”. When I give myself a day off from my blog, I still tend to social media. I think I need my husband to hide my ipad and computer!

      Sometimes great creativity comes after a break, right? A little free time from the screen is a good idea for everyone. give it a try!

    I have never taken a staycation, whenever I try I get too wrapped up in my normal routine and I start working. I know that is like a sin of staycationing, so I just pretty much gave up. But I want to try again!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      It is so hard to stay in the same place yet do something different, isn’t it? But we should totally keep trying!!

  8. These are great tips! I love the idea of turning off your phone and completely unplugging!

  9. Reeni says:

    Thanks for sharing these tips! We are planning a staycation soon, and we are very excited:) These definitely helped!

  10. I love this! We love vacations but our schedules don’t allow us to do it as much as we like. I am always looking for new ways to make memories with our kiddos!
