A staycation is, by definition, a period in which an individual or family stays home and participates in leisure activities within driving distance, sleeping in their own beds at night. The number of Ontario residents choosing a staycation over a vacation is rising.

Staycations are on the rise due to a poorly performing Canadian dollar. With all our comforts of home, taking time off work to simply get out of the heat and into our air conditioned homes, is becoming a popular choice. Home is fast becoming a favourite vacation destination.

We spend a great deal of our income, and time, making our home a place to be enjoyed. All year long we fail to spend much quality time in our homes because, well, life is busy. Choosing to enjoy a week partaking in all our home has to offer is growing in popularity.

Why stay home on vacation? Well for one thing, you make the best drink and you are likely your favourite person. Some other reasons to choose the comforts of your home as a vacation spot?

  • Air conditioning
  • Your own pool or Hot tub (If you have one)
  • Home Reno’s done in comfort
  • A great night’s sleep in your own bed
