There are various reasons why one may choose a staycation over a vacation. Some of the benefits of a staycation include more flexibility for a variety of activities, less of a hassle to plan, and of course overall savings on  lodging and airline tickets/gas. For many, a staycation is more relaxing and provides the unique opportunity to “be a tourist” in their own community or state.
