Staycation or Staycay - A vacation spent at home involving day trips to local attractions. Instead of traveling somewhere for vacation when you have time off, you stay at home and visit local attractions.
Two friends are talking about taking time off from work
Julie: I'm so stressed out lately! I really need a vacation. The only problem is that I don't have any money to travel anywhere.
Terri: Why don't you just take a staycation? You live in downtown LA, so there are plenty of places for you to see without having to pack a suitcase.
Julie: You're right. I've lived in LA for five years, and I still haven't visited half of the places on my list.
Terri: Last year, my staycation was the best. I unplugged from work, just slept in all day, and went out at night. It was also a lot cheaper than traveling to another city or country.
Julie: Hmmmm..it sounds nice. I could relax at that spa near my house that everyone says is so good. Then I could check out some of the museums. There is so much to see just in my area.
Julie: Thanks for the advice about the staycay. I'm feeling better already!
