Staycation Time!

You’ve worked hard throughout the year until now, so it’s time for you to pamper yourself! Taking a much needed vacation can help you recharge your depleted battery and give you a fresh outlook on life. The problem with vacations is that they’re usually pretty expensive. Instead of getting on a flight and going halfway across the world, we suggest taking a staycation. In this week’s Sunset Palms Blog, we’ve got a few ways you can make the most of staying in town and having a staycation.


Normally, if you’re headed on vacation, you’ve probably looked around extensively for housing accommodations. Many people tend to compromise a luxurious housing experience when they travel due to the cost, but with a staycation, you don’t have to. With the money that you’re going to be saving by not purchasing a plane ticket, you can use that money on a nicer hotel. Instead of a cheap motel, you can spring for a hotel with all the luxurious amenities you can use to pamper yourself!


Many people live in Hollywood, FL but have never gone out and experienced what the city has to offer. One of the benefits of a staycation is that you’re able to do things as if you were on vacation, which means you can be a tourist in your own city. If you’ve ever had friends come into town, they’ve probably asked you about activities you’d recommend while in the city. On your staycation, you can try out your own recommendations. Head to the beach, visit the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts, or spend some time shopping at Aventura Mall. Regardless of what you do, we’re sure you’ll have a blast!


There are many restaurants offering delicious food in the local area. We recommend getting to know your city a little more through the different restaurants. Instead of cooking food like you usually do, splurge and head to your favorite restaurant or try out a new restaurant you’ve never been to but heard good things about. Branch out from your regular spots and expand your palate while on your staycation.

It’s time to get out of your apartment and enjoy the city you live in on your very own staycation. Are you a master at the staycation? Share your tips with our community by leaving a comment
