For many of us, escaping out of town for a break is prohibitively expensive, time consuming or schedule conflicting. It’s not always practical to jet off to some ritzy resort or big city destination for a getaway, much as we’d like to. The next best thing is to adjust your attitude and be a tourist in your own hometown. Given the right approach, a well-planned or serendipitous staycation can be every bit as satisfying as a far-flung trip abroad.
1. Be a Tourist in Your Hometown
Tourists tend to experience places in a completely different way to the locals, and playing the tourist in your own town is bound to open up a whole raft of surprises. A staycation presents a great opportunity to experience your hometown from a completely different perspective. You can check out the tourist sites, visit the museums and quite possibly learn some entirely new things about your own home.
