Winter is the perfect season for a staycation! Hotel rates are low and staying overnight in a local hotel with a pool is a great way for your family to break up your regular routine and feel like you are on vacation while staying close to home.
Check in, go for a swim, decompress in the room with some naps or TV and snacks, pick up takeout from a local restaurant, play a board game after dinner, take another swim, snuggle in for a family movie and then hit the sack. The next day, grab breakfast and swim again and then head back home! It’s cost-effective and creates a fun outing your whole family will love while you can also stay safe in this perilous public health environment.
