Plan a Summer "Stay-cation" With Your Hot Tub
If you’re feeling less than enthusiastic about your vacation time this year, why not take a ‘stay-cation’ instead? After all, as fun as a trip away can be, they often come with a lot of stress. From booking hotels or flights to mapping out the best car route to packing and prepping, getting ready for your vacation takes a lot of energy.
Then there’s traveling. Whether you’re driving or flying, the actual travel time is rarely fun. It can be long, uncomfortable and tiring. Even when you’re at your locale of choice, trying to see all the sites can make each day a whirlwind of activity. And then there’s the return trip home.
If just reading about this has you feeling exhausted, why not consider a ‘stay-cation’ instead? It’s true, taking a vacation at home isn’t easy — especially when you have a list of small jobs to do around the house. So, how do you ensure your vacation isn’t over run with chores? Having a plan in place on how you’ll spend your time will help. Here are some great ideas that can make staying home one of the best holidays you’ve ever had.
Have a Hot Tub Holiday
Instead of spending thousands of dollars on a summer vacation, why not put that money toward creating your own oasis in your backyard? Investing in your enjoyment and relaxation at home is as easy as installing a hot tub. It not only allows you to pamper yourself year-round, it increases the value of your home.
While it’s true that installing a hot tub will cost you, it’s a long-term investment in your home that will allow you to have a spa-like experience every day. So this year, why not plan ahead and have your outdoor oasis in place on time for your summer vacation? Nothing beats relaxing in your own private spa.
Enjoy Daily BBQs
If your vacation is coming up, plan ahead and stock your fridge and freezer with some great meats and fresh produce for the grill. Nothing is more relaxing than cooking outdoors in the summer. No dirty pots in the kitchen and a variety of healthy meals fresh off the grill. What’s not to love?
Having an outdoor kitchen area as part of your deck or patio is a great way to enhance your enjoyment of those summer months. And if you’re having a ‘stay-cation,’ what could be better than enjoying a satisfying meal outside before taking a dip in your hot tub?
Camp it Out
You don’t have to leave home to enjoy a camping holiday. Instead, put up your tent in the backyard. It’s an adventure for the kids while still enabling you to enjoy all the comforts of home. Invest in an outdoor fire pit and enjoy nightly campfires with the kids. There’s nothing like roasting marshmallows under the stars, or making s’mores for dessert after a barbecue. Tell stories or sing songs around the fire, or watch for shooting stars.
Best of all, when you’re camping at home, you have your hot tub and outdoor grilling area nearby, enabling you to take food preparation and relaxation to the next level.
