9 Inexpensive Ways to Vacation at Home

By Just Heather |

We are just one week from spring break. I’d love to be counting down to an exciting trip, packing my bags for a week at the beach, or mapping out our trip to a fun destination. It’s just not in the budget this year.

That doesn’t mean we won’t have a great time!

We’ve actually never taken a spring break vacation, but I always try to give the girls fun experiences at home. I just want them to have stories to share when everyone gets back to school. We’ll try new things, have fun at home, visit a few of our favorite Indy attractions, and create fun memories without spending a lot of money.

Here are 9 fun things to do on a staycation:

Vacation at Home: 9 Inexpensive Things to Do

Backyard Campout

There's something fun & exciting to kids about sleeping outside. Throw up a tent, grab the sleeping bags, and enjoy an evening under the stars. (Don't forget the s'mores!) Camping is already a frugal family outing, but it's a little more palatable with running water and electricity right inside the door.
