Take a personal staycation
Staycations — vacations in your own town — have become popular for couples and families seeking a break on a budget, but why not take a staycay-day for yourself? Block out a day — or even just an afternoon — and take advantage of a local attraction that you've never bothered to check out. Suburbanites can drive to the nearest city, but even the smallest towns have spots you might not know much about — like a wacky little museum or a hidden park. You'll get to enjoy your own company, and you might discover a fun new place to share with your family or visitors on another day.
