- Anywhere Close to Home
Next time you plan time off from work, consider a staycation—simply stay close to home and vacation in your own neighborhood. While your first reaction may be that this is less adventurous than a cross-continental journey, consider how much you can discover by exploring the exotic in your own city or being a tourist in your own town. Step out and seek out unfamiliar places, such as restaurants, parks, and museums. Make discoveries and try to find new favorites. Bonus: it can be good for you and the environment as you'll spend less and be responsible for fewer carbon emissions.
