Your Summer Stay-cation
With ever-tightening budgets, a vacation might be the furthest thing from your wallet.
Money, shmoney. Use these tips for taking a vacation without ever leaving town!
Plan as though you actually are going on a getaway. Take time off work, buy a new outfit and a beach-worthy book. Pack your suitcase.
Skip the plane tickets. Find a nearby hotel with a killer summer deal. Vacation = room service.
Look for local attractions that you have never seen before. Museums, parks, local theater productions or a little-known-tour of quirky spots in town.
Act like a tourist. Take pictures, smile at people, eat a hot dog from the sidewalk cart, ask the locals to recommend things to see, buy a cheesy T-shirt.
Let your cares melt away. A massage can help you get into relaxation mode. Step out of the ordinary and try a treatment that's new to you, such as a hot stone massage or facial at a Massage Envy Spa.
