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.

  • provides deeply discounted restaurant certificates to eateries in your own backyard. Read more about 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.
  • 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.
