If you are considering a vacation this summer, you may be surprised with the amount of fun you can have in your own backyard! Staying home for a vacation is often referred to as a “staycation” and they are gaining popularity. Staying home for your annual vacation is a great way to save some money, to eliminate the stress and headaches that often come with a traditional holiday and create great memories with your family. If you are interested in planning your own staycation using your spa or pool, read on for some helpful tips!
Prepare Your Space
The last thing you want to have to worry about while relaxing with your family, is any yard work that needs to be done to have a useable space. Take some time before your vacation to ensure that your backyard area is ready to roll. This could include cleaning filters, balancing chemicals, or even investing in a pool liner replacement. These upgrades will ensure that your time is stress free.
Make A List
Take a moment to think about the things you may need while you are on holiday and collect them. Your holiday should not be interrupted by last minute trips to the grocery store for snacks, or a quick trip to the pool store for swimming pool equipment. Take an inventory of the items you have, and then think about the items you may want to incorporate. Consider new snacks, pool accessories, and even a new swimsuit to really get in vacation mode.
Schedule Your Time
Some people do not want to work off of an itinerary when they are on vacation, and that is perfectly acceptable. If you do, however, want to add in some other activities while on staycation consider activities that could be completed locally. Look at your town/city through the eyes of a tourist. Browse through a museum or take a walk in a historic district that you never really noticed.
Consider Some Upgrades
By spending your summer vacation in your own backyard, you will be able to save some money! Consider reinvesting this money into your own back yard, with some pool or spa upgrades. An outdoor stereo system can help give you privacy, as well as get the party started. A gazebo creates a romantic escape for a date night. Potted plants will create some mystery and a resort like feel.
