How to staycation in Aberdeen

This is not a lost summer. With a little bit of elbow grease, this could be the best summer ever.

Plan a staycation right here in Aberdeen. Just follow our step-by-step guide.

Step one: Treat it like a vacation

Many of us have vacation days that go unused, so use them. If your budget allows, book a camp site or hotel room to really get in the vacation mind set. A lot of accommodations have lower rates and greater availability mid-week. Best part is, little or no travel time means maximum fun.

Step two: Plan activities

If you have friends or family come into town, what do you suggest they do? Is there a restaurant you haven’t tried or an attraction you haven’t visited? Now’s the time to go do that!

Need suggestions?

Step three: Unplug

This goes back to step one, treat a staycation like a vacation. Use your phone for pictures, but try not to use it for anything else. If you must keep in touch, set aside some time in the morning and/or evening.

Step four: Come home

Whether you left or not, end your staycation like you would a vacation: Unpack your bags, get a load of laundry in, eat questionable leftovers or order a pizza because you just don’t have it in you to cook.
