Why You Need to Create a Staycation Bucket List

Summer is fast approaching, which means long days with kids at home and the expectation of a vacation planned. When it comes to planning the perfect vacation, your idea of a great vacation is probably not staying at home.

If you are planning a staycation, you need to create a staycation bucket list for you and your family! Here is why you need one, and how to make one for your next staycation.

When you are planning a vacation, one of the first things you look for is fun things to do while you are there. For some reason, when we plan a staycation, we don’t do the same thing. Instead, we tend to wing it and end up finding ourselves without much to do on our vacation.

How to create a staycation bucket list

Now that you know why you should create a staycation bucket list, it’s time to put one together! I’ve listed this out in a step-by-step guide to make sure you have a perfect bucket list created for your next staycation.

Step 1: Brainstorming

The first thing you want to do is sit down as a family and start brainstorming. Think about how long you are going to be staycationing for, and use this to help you decide what kind of activities you want to do. If you are staycationing for a week, you will need way more activities than if you are staycationing for a short weekend.

Step 2: Consult the internet

Your own brain will only get you so far. To make this a vacation to remember, you need to consult the internet. Groupon and Living Social can help you find deals on some of the activities that you may have come up with, or give you more ideas to work with. You can also look up museums, water parks, and other fun activities in your area to help add to your list. You can also find other people’s staycation ideas for inspiration!

Step 3: Pick only what is realistic for your family and write it down!

Not all the ideas you come up with will make sense for your family. Think about what you can realistically do in your time off, and write those ideas down on your bucket list. You can always save ideas you came up with for a later date!

You don’t need to have a huge budget in order to have a great staycation! If you follow these tips, you’ll plan the perfect staycation that your family will remember for years to come.
