Wine Cellar Inspirations: Staycation Activities For The Holidays

November 22nd, 2017

Christmas holidays is drawing closer and closer! For sure, we’re all excited in planning out our winter activities. But for some (and maybe more), the budget just won’t cooperate. That means you can’t really go anywhere nice and warm. Well, think about this, though. A tropical vacation may sound dreamy, but it’s not the only way to enjoy the season. You’ll be wonderfully surprised at how some staycation activities can be even more fun and productive. Here are a few of them. Check them out, try them out, save more money in the process and have a blast this holidays:

Pull up your city or town’s local event guide

Most cities and towns actually have a winter calendar with a bunch of awesome activities already scheduled. If you were too busy with other stuff (or probably staying away) during the winter season to check them out, now’s the time to do so. Most of these activities are scheduled on weekends so that families can take advantage of them. They can range from holiday bazaars to carols and sleigh rides, winter sports, Christmas shows, and so much more. You will discover so many events to go to that you’ll be asking for more time to do them all.

Explore your town or city's hot spots!

Explore local parks and “hot” spots

This is something that happens most of the time. Because we’ve lived practically all our lives in our area, we neglect to explore it. We take for granted that there are actually places that attract other people as well. So if you don’t have the money to splurge on that tropical vacation, go out and explore your local attractions. Visit your local museum or historical societies. Check out the activities in your local parks. Go for a drive and enjoy the sights your city or town has to offer this time of the year. And don’t forget to try out local restaurants you’ve never been to before!

Organize holiday wine and cheese party!

Organize get-togethers or fun nights-out

Now is the time to fully enjoy with your family and friends without having to worry about spending a fortune. The best thing about staycations is that they give you so much time to just hang out and have a genuinely good time. Plan a spa day with your girlfriends. Throw an informal wine and cheese tasting party at home. Do a movie-swap with friends: go to the movie you like this week and the one that they like the next. And of course – go shopping!
