What’s a ‘staycation’?

With the rising price of gas and airline tickets, many of us can’t afford to travel long distances for vacation. Try the alternative – a staycation. Staycations – just like they sound – are stay at home vacations.

One of my favorite staycations took place last fall. We visited the local zoo, the beach, a maritime museum, a casino, and tried two new restaurants. All of this was accomplished on a budget and using coupon deals.

Check out these money-saving sources when planning your next staycation.

  • Restaurant.com provides deeply discounted restaurant certificates to eateries in your own backyard. Read more about Restaurant.com in one of my recent blog posts.
  • Groupon offers discounts to many attractions in your area including sporting events, winery tours, and amusement parks. Visit their website to search by zipcode for deals near you.
  • Entertainment.com serves as a large database of printable 2-for-1 coupons to restaurants and attractions. You must subscribe to their online catalog to access the coupons.

Staycations allow you to discover treasures in your own backyard, like this WPA-era tower at our local zoo.

FREE Travel + Leisure magazine subscription!

Although nearly every hotel and restaurant mentioned in Travel + Leisure magazine is out of my price range, I subscribe to the publication for a reason – I enjoy making these fancy-smanchy destinations a reality by searching out deals on my own. The magazine definitely caters to the upper-class tourist, but the destinations highlighted in each issue are reachable if you are budget savvy!

FREE admission to your National Parks – April 22-26, 2013

My husband and I share a love for America’s beautiful and unique national parks. The National Park Service manages 401 (and counting) parks all over the US. These places range from flagship parks such as Yellowstone and Great Smoky Mountains to gems such as Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas – the smallest national park in the system!

While a handful of National Park Service properties are free, most charge admission. I’ve paid anything from a few dollars up to $25 at Yellowstone. Great news for fellow park enthusiasts - admission fees to all parks will be waived from April 22-26, 2013 in honor of National Park Week.

Find your national parks at: http://www.nps.gov/
