You’ve likely heard the term for taking a vacation without actually going out of town—staycation. This is a growing trend that is especially popular among younger people. According to Regency Hotel Management, the millennial generation is on average taking over three staycations per year. More people being able to work remotely, combined with the financial benefits of staying local as opposed to traveling, are two big factors driving this. The proliferation of hotel day rooms, however, is also changing how people spend their leisure time.


In the past, booking a hotel room meant going out of town and paying a premium for the convenience of staying overnight. While there are obvious benefits to this kind of travel, it’s can be time-consuming, exhausting, and expensive.

Reasons to Staycation Over Vacation

There’s a reason why more people are choosing to staycation over traveling. Even before the restrictions put in place due to the Coronavirus, people were seeing plenty of reasons to stay close to home instead of getting away. These are a few of the top reasons staycations are so appealing:




Make Your Regular Life More Leisurely 

The thing about staycations that makes them unique from vacations is that they don’t need to be considered special events. There’s always this fear of getting sick right when you’re about to travel, as it can totally ruin something you’ve spent months (if not years) looking forward to. Staycations normalize the idea of leisure in a way that’s been lost to most people. A staycation doesn’t require much planning or money—just the desire to live life to the fullest.
