A happy family plays with a beach ball while on vacation

While some people choose to go to a hot destination spot like Florida or California for spring break, some people just don't have the time, money, or desire to do so. But that doesn't mean you can't have an amazing spring break right in the comfort of your own local area!

So how do you do that? Check out these great tips for having a spring staycation that you'll always remember!

Book A Hotel in the "Fancy" Part of Town

A staycation doesn't mean you have to stay at home. Treat yourself (and your partner or best friend) to a stay in a hotel in the best part of town. With money saved on gas, you can afford to splurge just a little. Plus, staying at a hotel means you don't have to cook your own food, do your own laundry, or clean the house during your spring break.

Visit Those Local Eateries You Haven't Had Time To

There is always at least one or two local eateries you've been dying to try but just haven't had the time, too. Take this time to go ahead and test them out. You might even find yourself a new favorite that you don't have to travel hundreds of miles to visit. Another bonus? You'll be supporting the local economy while having a fantastic time doing it.

Grab A Late Movie

Remember when you were a teenager and the later the movie the better? There wasn't as large a crowd, and you didn't have any pressing commitments the following morning. As an adult, however, grabbing the late movie often means deciding if you want to be tired for that 6 a.m. appointment. Your staycation is the perfect time to relive those memories and snuggle up in the very back row of the 11 pm showing.

Take a Day Trip

If you want to see some new sights, despite not wanting to travel far from a spring break destination spot, a day trip is just what the doctor ordered. Generally, most people like to keep their daytrip destinations within two hours of their home. If you don't mind getting home a little late, however, a daytrip could potentially be up to three or four hours away.

Do a google search and see what's nearby. Pack a picnic lunch, grab some road trip snacks, and head out early in the morning for a full day of adventure. When you return to your home or hotel at the end of the day you can fall straight into bed - it's your vacation, after all!

Hang Out With Forgotten Friends

During the hustle and bustle of everyday adult life, our time with friends can sometimes get swept under the rug. Carve out a little time in your staycation to spend it with friends you haven't seen in a while. Have lunch with your best friend from high school and grab a spa day with your little sister. Reconnecting isn't just fun, but a great boost to your mental health!

Venture Outdoors

Within an hour or two of most places in the United States is some type of "great outdoors," so your staycation is the perfect time to venture out into it. Go hiking, fishing, biking, or even camping! If you aren't sure where these natural areas are around you, search online for state parks, recreation centers, or wildlife centers.

These tips can help you plan an amazing staycation you'll remember for years to come. Just remember that the most important thing is to relax and have fun! Really, this is the time to do those things you love but just never seem to have the time for.
