No elaborate travel plans for the summer? Don’t even have a weekend away scheduled on your calendar? Take heart, it’s not too late to plan that summer vacation. Sometimes we make our best discoveries when travel is a bit spontaneous and there are ways to take the stress out of last-minute planning.
1. Is it too late to plan a summer getaway? No, it’s never too late, at least no in Central Florida. For last-minute summer rentals check out HomeAway.com or VBRO.com. FlipKey.com has great last minute deals and a discounts section that allows you to sort by destination. The Chambers of Commerce in small towns can often recommend places you can’t find on the internet.
2. Any suggestions for planning a staycation? I am a big fan of staycations and can’t think of a better way of indulging by checking into a nice hotel or resort near your home city. If in Central Florida, drive to the Palm Coast, Amelia Island, or St. Petersburg. No only do they have beautiful beaches but they are spectacular cities with lots to do. It’s a super fun, relaxing thing to do when you want a change of scenery, but you can’t get away.
3. What should I do if I only have a day to get away? Act like a tourist in your home town. Make plans to do something you enjoy that you don’t treat yourself to usually. Like a visit to a day spa, a hot-air balloon ride, or a zip lining adventure. For a real special treat – when you want to relax by the pool, eat a delicious meal, and be pampered, consider renting a pool-side cabana at one of the resort hotels for the day. Your mind, body, and soul will feel like you are on vacation in no time.
