Vacationing: Stay or Go?

Vacationing: Stay or Go?


Staycations are the talk of the town this summer. With skyrocketing gas prices and more fees at the airport, it's not hard to understand why. Fewer Americans are taking to the skies this summer compared to last, according to the Air Transport Association. But sometimes the best part of a little R&R is the getaway-literally getting away from it all. Who can truly relax with real-world worries constantly intruding on your time off?

This summer I'm using a small chunk of my vacation time in August to hit the beach, but I'm doing it close to home. Getting there will be cheap. While staying there will be a little pricey, cutting the travel expense does help. And since I'm already saving up for a real vacation later in the year, a staycation isn't a bad move for now.

How are you planning to vacation this summer? Is it going to be a staycation or an all-out getaway?
