You Do Not Have to Travel Far to Have Fun

Most budgets usually cannot handle frequent large vacations. You don’t have to travel far to have fun though. Often you can find fun and inexpensive ways to spend your vacation close to home. Take a trip to the library and talk to a librarian about the many free programs they offer. Check around for local pools, mini-golf courses, and playgrounds that you’ve never visited. Have picnics in the park, tour a fire station, or fly kites. Use this time to take things easy. Read a long novel, rent old movies, and catch up on your letter writing. Take time to get a massage and catch up on your sleep.

Visit some tourist attractions in your own backyard. Call your local Chamber of Commerce or Visitors Information Board and ask for information on local tourist sites. If there are any on the list you haven’t been to, take time this summer to check them out. Visit a museum, go to the zoo, or catch a play put on by a local production company.

Vacations close to home can not only save you money, they can also give you a new appreciation for the community you live in. Often people come back from a long trip tired and exhausted from all the traveling. When you vacation close to home, you’ll end up refreshed and relaxed.
