Some Great Reasons to Consider a Staycation This Summer

Some Great Reasons to Consider a Staycation This Summer

As we all know, Tucson sizzles in the summer.  Many of us get to take a break and head north or to the oceans for a short time but let’s not forget all of the treasures there are right here in our own backyard to take advantage of.  We have the chance to stay in first class resorts for ridiculously low prices and have the opportunity to support local attractions and locally-owned restaurants when they need us the most.  From Saturday nights at the Desert Museum to day and overnight trips to Mt. Lemmon, there are places to explore and fun to be had. 

Here are some of my top reasons to consider taking staycation this summer:

Fall deeper in love with our city.  Acting like a tourist in your own hometown or even region, will help you discover restaurants, spas and experiences you never knew about or always wanted to try. By choosing a staycation right here, you can find new reasons to love Tucson, which will add to your general happiness throughout the year because you learn to love more about the place you live.

Simplicity. There’s an incredible world out there, right outside our doors. We don’t need to travel to other places to find it. Tucson and the southwest offer countless types of fun for us to enjoy during a staycation. No worry about delayed flights or lost luggage.

Recharge. You can really recharge. It’s easy to get stuck in a pattern where you find yourself busy all the time. Be sure not to overlook yourself during a staycation!

Save Money. Staying in the area will cut down costs by eliminating the need for plane tickets and rental cars. You can find great deals in this area, including discounts on meals, hotels and activities. 

Support locally-owned businesses. You support the local economy and keep the restaurants, local attractions & resorts in business during hot summer months.

Keep a Lower Carbon Footprint. Help the environment. A short drive will help you keep a much lower carbon footprint than flying.

Connect more with loved ones. Be mindful with the time you spend with your partner, close friends or family. It’s easy to be distracted these days on a daily basis. Choosing to take a staycation can help you connect with your loved ones in new ways (like playing fun games), improve your ability to be present and mindful when spending time with them and simply make more good memories!
