A vacation that is spent at one’s home enjoying all that home and one’s home environs have to offer.
Even though I live and work in New York, I don’t always get to enjoy all it has to offer, what with my work commitments, but I sure did have an awesome time here during my spring staycation.
A vacation spent close to home.
With the price of gas soaring, a staycation is what most Americans will experience during the summer of 2008.
Being urban farmers, it’s really hard to “get away” without any sort massive planning efforts. So for us finding fun in our own backyard has been the norm for our family for many years. Being tied to the land we don’t have the luxury to just pick up an go any old time we like. It’s been good experience for us to have such local travel habits and local holiday outlook. Now with the higher gas prices people are beginning to realize that their holiday plans and travel habits are forced to change.
Yesterday, we enjoyed had a little holiday outing-picnic in the lower Arroyo Seco with family, friends and even goats. It’s been quite an unusually cool (chilly) holiday weekend – definitely not like the beach weather we experienced last weekend.
The sun peeked through just in time for the picnic and afterwards is was time to take a walk with the goats.
Will you be staycationing at home this summer?
What local jaunts will you be planning to re-discover or how will you go about creating fun and community closer to home?
