Marcy @ Ben and MeSummer Staycationing 2014

To create this post, I’ve pulled some past blog posts I’ve written about some of our favorite spots, and I’ve asked some of my blogging friends to give me links to posts they have written on the topic. I think you’ll enjoy these awesome staycation (and vacation) ideas!

Sarah @ Delivering GraceSummer Survival

Time at home can be quite challenging! As a home educating mother, I’m quite tired by the holidays. In September, when my Facebook feed is taken up with friends rejoicing that they can now go out for coffee, I, and many other home educators, are strengthening their arms for the new academic year. So the summer holiday needs to be relatively restful.

Tara @ This Sweet Life – War Eagle Mill in Bentonville, AR

From the river to the mill to the old bridge, we had so much fun exploring this working mill. The employees were very nice and answered all of the questions my kids had.

Leah @ As We Walk Along the Road —  Stay At Home Summer Fun

It’s always fun to take a vacation in the summer. But if you can’t make it out of your own town, you can still have plenty of fun hanging out at home- or around your town. Here are some ideas for stay at home summer fun.

Meg @ Adventures with Jude – On the way to Cape May

From the Adventure Aquarium to the Cape May Zoo, there’s plenty to do in South Jersey!

Kathy @ Kathys Cluttered MindSoutheast Staycations

I love living in Georgia because there is always something new to explore in the Peach State, including over 200 FREE things. And if you run out of things to do in GA you can hop in the car and get to FL, AL, TN or SC in just a few hours!

Jennifer @ a glimpse of our life – Ice Cream in a Bag

This simple recipe can add a taste of fun to your hot summertime staycation day.

Kym @ Homeschool Coffee Break – Staycationing and Our Very Own Summer Day Camp

Last year I made a list of Staycationing ideas, and we didn’t get to very many of the local sites that came to mind… The places from last year’s list that we’re most interested in for this year are probably Catoctin Mountain and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal…
Something else that falls in the “Staycation” category will be the 2014 edition of Kamp KennadyAnne (our DIY day camp)!

Laura @ Day by Day in Our World – Enjoying Time with a Summer Staycation

Talk to just about anyone around and the economy continues to be bad enough that the idea of a vacation seems far fetched. We didn’t have grand plans beyond doing some RVing this summer, possibly including a trip into the Yukon area of Canada. But between wildfires here in Alaska and vehicles breaking down on us, that just isn’t looking too promising. So what can you do?

How can you have a Staycation (a vacation where you actually stay within your home town) and still feel like you got away?
