When a big getaway is not possible, there is something to be said for the rejuvenating effects of a locally focused vacation.
There is no need to stay home for every staycation, so why not book a quick escape, get out and explore. Stay at some of your local or area hotels and experience what its like to be a tourist in your own town!
The goal is to get away from the everyday, and heading out for a getaway like this is just the elixir! Do a little research as to where you want to go and what hotels are available in your area or in the location you desire to head to. This is the perfect time to see those places you keep hearing about or always wanted to visit. Book a reservation and the best room you can afford. Want to splurge? Get a suite! Or if staying in a B&B is more your style, find one that is off your regular day to day paths so you can drive down unfamiliar streets. Secure up the house and have it tidy before you head out to avoid a sinking feeling when you return. Then pack your bag, bring a book you’ve been meaning to read and head off! Maybe you’ve chosen to a nearby town or city. While it may seem a bit odd to stay in a nearby hotel when you have a perfectly good home right there, the refreshing effect of waking somewhere unfamiliar makes it a worthwhile adventure.

The Quick Escape Sensation
The room service, new surroundings and waking in a different location are remarkable in their ability to creating a large enough change of pace to make you feel like you may be farther away. Time may seem to march a little slower. Completely immerse yourself in the experience. Loose yourself and drink in every moment. Sip champagne in your hotel room. Have a luxurious bubble bath. Try a new restaurant. Whatever you do, this is a great time to reconnect with yourself and the loved ones that have accompanied you on this delightful retreat. When you return feeling refreshed and renewed, why not keep a bag packed for just those occasions when heading out for those impromptu getaways! It is these types of experiences that can make days brighter knowing that another adventure is so close at hand!
