Have a staycation!

Benefits of a Staycation

Knoxville, TN

From my staycation in Knoxville

In today’s turbulent economic times, a new term has emerged – staycation. What is a staycation and why should you take one? A staycation is where a person takes time away from work, but instead of traveling far away, stays home. While it is possible to travel on a budget, and have a wonderful time while doing so, sometimes it just makes sense to stay home. There is the financial aspect – transportation costs are much lower when you don’t have to fly or drive long distances. It also makes sense if you have a sick family member. If you are nearby, you are obviously more easily accessible.

Meeting Your Hometown

I’ve been to Europe more times than I’ve been to the oldest city in Tennessee, Jonesborough. That’s really sad. Jonesborough is only two hours from my house, and I’ve missed out on visiting its numerous historical and cultural attractions (like its world-famous storytelling event!) Take some time to get to know YOUR hometown and region. Act like a tourist. Visit the museums. Do a nature hike. Relax. Enjoy your city. Contact your own local tourist department and find out what there is to do in the area.

Enjoy your travels around your hometown. You will come away from your staycation with a new appreciation for the area in which you live.
