The Great American Staycation : How to Make a Vacation at Home Fun for the Whole Family (and Your Wallet!)
Layoffs are rampant, gas prices are volatile, airlines are cutting flights, and Americans are feeling the economic pinch of a recession. As much as we hate it in this country of big dreams, big cars and Big Macs, we have to find a way to cut back. For many Americans, that means turning the Great American Vacation into a "staycation," which is the big buzzword of the year, having appeared in articles everywhere from www.CNN.com to Newsweek. But what does a staycation really mean? Newspaper humor columnist and frequent staycationer Matt Wixon shares with readers the definition of a staycation as well as:
* Rules for a successful, satisfying vacation at home or nearby
* Motivation and encouragement for people who can't afford the big, traditional vacation
* Ways to make the most of time off from work
From alternatives to destination theme parks to making the most out of local amenities to reigniting the flame in a relationship, Americans will find this guide a humorous and invaluable guide to staying home on vacation.
