Even though we moved here eight months ago, we are still feeling like there is so much to discover in our town. So when I saw the cruise title Summer Staycationing, I knew it would be a great way to add a few fun ideas to our Summer Bucket List while we explore the area a little better.

We will also take advantage of the accommodations that are already paid for right here at our house. Our comfortable familiar beds, and our own economically stocked kitchen for meals. Saving money on hotels and eating out will ease the vacation expense, and after all, there is PLENTY to see and do within a couple hours drive of home.
