Sure, going on vacation is fun. But it's also expensive and involves a lot of driving, waiting at airports and paying for restaurant meals.
Sometimes, it's far more relaxing just taking some time off close to home.
The term "staycation" has become popular in recent years as people take a second look around at fun places to go and fun things to do neaby. It saves gas money, travel time and you can still get home in time to watch the next episode of "Game of Thrones."
Maybe your idea of a great "staycation" is a spa day, followed by a good meal and a night out to hear some music. For families with younger children, a staycation may include a day trip to the zoo or museum, some pizza and a cold beer at your favorite pub.
