With money tight and gas prices up this summer, why not consider a “stay-cation”? What is a stay-cation you ask? It is a mini vacation in or around your home town.
Some ideas for planning a stay-cation with your family are:
- Book a night at a local hotel and enjoy the pool, air conditioned rooms, and other amenities they provide. The Oxford Suites in Chico includes complimentary happy hour and breakfast with their guest stays.
- Taking advantage of places you would not regularly visit can be exciting, fun, and even nostalgic. For instance, Chico’s Funland has roller skating, miniature golf, and batting cages. Stepping onto their facilities brought a smile to my face and an eagerness to try my luck at these things I haven’t done since I was a kid.
- Bidwell Park has One Mile Recreation Area (Sycamore Pond) for swimming, along with many lakes, rivers and parks with picnic facilities to enjoy.
So save your family some money and create a lasting summer experience by trying a “stay-cation”. Remember, memories last forever and memories can be priceless!
