Staycation vacation

This summer, take a staycation. A staycation is a stay-at-home vacation.

You can do fun things in your own town or city. You don’t have to spend money on travel, airfare or hotels.

What to do:

  • Go on walking tours. Learn about history, architecture and art from a local expert. Many guided tours are free or only cost a little.
  • Get outdoors. Go for a walk or find a trail and go hiking. Rent a bike.
  • Go on a scavenger hunt with your family. Make a checklist of things to find like a statue, a bird, a flag or other things.
  • Look for discounts. On certain days, many places offer deals on admission fees. Check before you go to find a good time to visit.
