The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on the US and the world right now, and there are travel bans in place that are keeping would-be travelers stuck at home. But just because there may be stay-at-home orders or social distancing measures in place doesn’t mean you have to forgo your “holiday” as you had planned.

There are several ways to enjoy a “staycation” without having to travel far or be amidst crowds. You can still enjoy a vacation with your family while still staying safe during this health crisis.

Here are a few ideas you might want to consider for your upcoming holiday.

Enjoy a Spa Day 

Relaxing at a spa at a resort sounds wonderful, but you can bring the spa experience home. All you need are a few items to treat yourself and your loved ones at home, such as face masks, aromatherapy candles, mani-pedi supplies, and a foot soak.

Hold a Family Cooking Night

If you are foodie and base your holidays around different culinary experiences, perhaps you can enjoy that experience in your own kitchen. Grab yourself a number of ingredients from various parts of the world, and host a family cook night where you enjoy different dishes. 

Camp in Your Backyard

If getting away to a campsite isn’t possible, consider pitching a tent in your own backyard. Don’t forget the s’mores!

Enjoy a Day at the Pool

Who needs to pay for an expensive trip to a resort when you can bring the outdoor oasis right to your own backyard? Considering the amount of time you’ll be staying home over the next little while and the mild temperatures we’re lucky enough to enjoy, why not have a swimming pool installed in your yard from a trusted Austin pool builder? You can visit your ‘favorite’ resort any day of the year when a pool is easily accessible.
