Vacation OR Staycation!!!!

Although going on a vacation can surely be lots of fun as well as evoking heady excitment  to be retreating for awhile from the cold and snow, one must also admit that sometimes going away on a holiday is more trouble than it is worth too.  Consider the following.


Not only do you have to pack, plan and prepare for your time away, but you must make sure there is someone to take care of your pets, collect your paper and mail, water your plants, shovel your driveway and walkways and check on your house after a storm on those sub-zero days.  Those rising gas prices are also a consideration as they do take a toll on your travel budget.  Have you considered a Staycation?!?!?  We have a few tips that are not only fun, but can give you that 'holiday' feel too!

1)  Be a Tourist In Your Own Area:   Start by contacting the local toursit bureau (or the tourist bureau in the town you choose to go to) so you can plan your 'trip' as if it were your fist time visiting.  Go to the town's website(s) to see their Calendar of Events.  We are so blessed to have exciting adventures going on all the time; with you and your family embracing the winter fun and excitement this climate brings to others who come here to play.  Checkout Barrie, Huntsville, Orilla, Toronto, Niagara Falls .... just to name a few places.

2.  Stay At A Hotel:  We've so many wonderful accomodations that 'include' many perks such as meals, pools, hot tubs, snow shoes, skiing ... to name a few.  Preferably, pick an unfamiliar place an hour or so from home so you can feel like it is a real getaway ... then while there, book a massage or something you personally enjoy to get that holiday 'pampered' feeling.

4.  If you have children, let them pick an attraction they've always wanted to go to .... perhaps an amusement park, museum, etc.  Have you ever tried Plunge on Blue Mountain?  It's so much fun for the whole family.  What about tubing at Snow Valley ... it's a total blast for young and old alike!!  Have you ever tried Geocaching?  I've written an earlier blog about this exciting activity.  Whether staying right in the Southern Georgian Bay, visiting other towns or heading to the big city, you will find lots of exciting new adventures awaiting you.

5.  Dine Out:   Try a restaurant where you have never previously eaten.  Online there are LOTS of discount coupons to choose from too!  Online you might find  "2 for 1" coupons, "buy one entree and get second free", "free dessert" etc. etc. So many dining establishments have deals ... and good deals too! .... meant to get you through the door!  You will find many restaurants where "the kids eat for free"!   A little research is required but it is well worth your effort ...... and NO dishes to do !!!
