Whether it’s time or budget you may only be able to afford one vacation a year if that—but never underestimate the benefits of a nearcation.
There Is So Much To See Just A Few Hours Away
It doesn’t matter where you live you can hop in the car and drive 4 hours or less and find something fun to do.

This made nearcations the perfect weekend getaway.
A Break From Monotony Is All You Need
While it might sound more exciting to go farther away you will still enjoy all the relaxing benefits of a full vacation—and far more than with a staycation. By breaking the monotony of your usual routine and enjoying a change of scenery and pace you can come back after a few days away feeling renewed.

The key to any successful vacation is to unplug, ideally for the entire time off—but at the very least for dedicated chunks of time each day. So, even if it’s a working vacation schedule in blocks of time when you are in full-vacation mode.
Here’s to enjoying more quality time off!
