You don’t have to travel to an exotic location to get a festive drink. Make fun drinks at home with your blender. Shake a rum cocktail or go with an agave spirit.
2nd day of the water feature
Get a plastic pool, sprinkler system, hose, water guns, and water balloons for a day of water features. Blow off your swimsuits and sunscreen and come to the competitions.
3. Cook a wild meal
Bring the cuisine of Italy and Rome to your table. Some of the best ingredients can be found in the local markets. You can take some cooking classes online to learn how to make some of the most fun meals out there.
4. Experience nature
Nature is all around us. Find a great local trail and do a little hike. Pack a picnic basket and blanket.
5. Go to your home spa
Get out things like sugar, coconut oil, olive oil, essential oils and get a body scrub. Set up your bathroom with a steam shower with a jug of cucumber water to add moisture.
6. Turn off the phone
Play like you are out of the country and can’t turn on the phone. Don’t check the social media or the news. It’s time for a total escape from around the world.
7. Relax outside by candlelight
Going outside on a beautiful summer night is perfect. Get tea lights or candles to accompany you. You can read a book, turn on some tunes, or just relax.
8. Home room service
One of the best things about a vacation is having room service assistance. Have others in the house take turns serving each other in bed and cooking breakfast.
9. Buy a souvenir
Buy a new set of coffee cups or a couple of new wine glasses. You can drink from your coffee mugs or sip from your wine glasses during your stay.
10. Aromatherapy Spa Bathroom
Choose some soothing essential oils for your warm bath. You can light some candles as you sink into your dream tub.
11. Grocery Splurge
Vacation usually means spending a lot of money in restaurants. Treat yourself to your own food. Check out amazing breads, trendy desserts, expensive alcohol and specialty meats.
12. Try a new cocktail
You can find special cocktails in your house bar. Go for a new type of wine. Think of your favorite vacation drinks and give them your own personal touch.
13. Be a hometown tourist
There are probably cool places right in your hometown. Take a look at the places that you take for granted. They have little hotspots just waiting to be explored by you.
14. Get a maid
This saves you money, so get someone to clean your house for a few months. A luxury of your stay means you can stay in a fresh home.
15. Take lots of photos
One of the greatest things on vacation is photos. Take photos outside and relax, in the kitchen to prepare new dishes, or from your relaxing movie night.
16. Go to the lake
The lake is like a vacation only much closer. Go fishing, rent a boat, explore local hiking trails, or just sit by the lake.
Volunteering for your favorite cause gives you a boost. It’s different from your everyday life. Find something that will refresh your soul.
18. Have a film festival
Choose a theme for your film festival. Rent out some movies or find them on your favorite streaming service. Get your favorite candy, popcorn and drinks.
19. Buy yourself a white plush robe
You shouldn’t just reserve the white plush robe for hotels. Buy a French terry or cotton robe to relax on your stay.
20. Take a backyard camping trip
Nature is waiting in your garden under the stars. Pack some snacks and make your supplies for smells. Don’t forget your bug spray and flashlight for scary stories.
21st block party
Organize a block party for everyone in the neighborhood. Make it a potluck and everyone will bring their favorite drinks. You can even rent a couple of jumping games for the kids.
22. Local festivals
There are usually (maybe not during the pandemic) all kinds of local festivals, events, and farmers’ markets. Get out there and support all the local fun.
23. Pick some fruit
Look for local places to pick berries and other fruits. Depending on the time of year, you can usually freeze them all year round.
24. Visit local parks
There are usually parks full of hidden creeks and manicured trails near your home. Often we just never think of them when we drive by. Have a picnic and explore.
25. Try kayaking
Take a kayak or canoe to your favorite body of water. It’s peaceful and you will get a good workout.
26. Hire a massage therapist
Get a massage at your home. Many day spas send a therapist on a home visit. Let yourself be pampered in your own living room.
27. Visit local museums
There is history a few miles away. Check out your local museums for lessons. You might also have a lot of fun.
28. Find a hotel offer
Tips for where to stay must be finding a hotel near you. Pack up and spend the night like you’re a million miles away. Make yourself comfortable in the fresh bed and enjoy room service.
29. Take a course
Take a class to learn a new skill. You can learn to cook a gourmet meal, work with wood, or take a history class.
30. Check out books
Visit your local library to stock up on books or magazines. In your relaxing space, sit back and jump in the sides.
