No need to travel for a vacation

staycationNeed a vacation but don’t know where to go? Easy – Sandman Staycation. A what? A vacation in your own city where you get to truly explore sites and attractions while staying at your local Sandman hotel. Perfect way to truly enjoy your time off.

So now that you know where your vacation will be, it’s time to plan the itinerary.

Act like a tourist. Most people travel far to visit museums in other countries but have yet to visit the tourist attractions in their own backyards. When you check in at the hotel, ask for some brochures for nearby museums, hikes, and parks. Or, visit the attractions that you’ve always wanted to see but never have.


Take your taste buds on a trip. Treat yourself to a culinary adventure by indulging in different ethnic food each night. Never been to Greece? Perfect. Find the closest Greek restaurant and make sure to try the ouzo.

Watch a foreign movie. Instead of stumbling on your words while attempting to communicate with foreign locals, just watch a movie with subtitles. Check to see if your city has a movie theatre that shows foreign films. Wouldn’t it be great to go to Paris without the long flight?Photographer

Take photos. This is your chance to really act like a tourist. Ask strangers to take pictures of you in front of famous buildings and statues. Make sure you have a camera strap and hang your camera around your neck. This way, you actually look like a tourist.


So next time you need a break from reality, but don’t know where to go, remember: a Sandman Staycation is right around the corner.
