Hello all - Has anyone done a "staycation" instead of a vacation? It is when you stay at home instead of taking a vacation and you treat it like a vacation. I have lived in Washington, DC for five years and am considering doing this for my next "vacation." I was a student for 4 of those years, so I guess it doesn't really count - but I feel like I have not really experienced DC and done anything that is deemed "touristy" since I first got to this city (ie: visiting the memorials, going to the Washington Monument, getting a bus tour of DC). For those of you who have done "staycations," do you find that you still spend a lot of money? Sure, I may save money on travel and lodging, since I am essentially staying home - but doing activities and going to fun events to mimic a vacation will still take money.
