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.
