Summer is here! For some, this means taking time off to go on a family holiday or some exotic getaway…
Of course, that was before you launched your own business, and vacations became a major expense/luxury/unlikelihood.
Don’t worry, you can still relax and have fun in the Magic City at an affordable price. Here are five tips that can help you plan a fun staycation:
1. Stay somewhere else
Book a room in a different part of town using Airbnb. Sometimes you need a change of scenery from just your own window view. Instead of leaving the city, why not just leave your neighborhood for a few days? For an affordable price, you can go on vacation but stay close. Isn’t this one of the many benefits of living in paradise?
2. Rent a boat for a few hours using Boatbound
The ocean breeze, a few cocktails, and good company. If you’re not going anywhere, why not get some friends together and hit the sea? Boatbound makes it easy for you to rent a boat, find a captain if you want, and enjoy a day of fun under the sun.
3. Find a special activity for a discounted price on Groupon, LivingSocial or Gilt City
There are also fun, land-based options. This holiday may be the perfect opportunity for you to get that deep-tissue massage, try that brunch at a new local restaurant, or even rent a jet ski for a few hours. You can find all sorts of activities to help you relax, explore the outdoors, or try a hip new restaurant at discounted rates. Sites like Groupon and Gilt City have ramped up their offers for the summer, which means there are many options for you to live it up locally.
4. Read a great book
The best way to escape is by going on an adventure. Some of the best adventures are printed or a click away at an affordable price. If it’s been a while since you picked up a book and don’t know what to read other than business or self-help books, don’t worry, Goodreads and even Amazon have awesome recommendations.
5. Make new friends and explore the city together using Tinder App
How about seeing the city through the eyes of a stranger? Who knows where that may lead…
