How to Bring the Holiday Home To Nashville This Summerpoolandspadepot
Affording a vacation away to somewhere exotic and tropical is almost a fact of life for most Tennessee families. You save up a few thousand each year to get a couple of weeks away somewhere hot, interesting, and relaxing. People are opting more and more for a different option, though.
The word ‘staycation’ is a portmanteau of stay (meaning stay-at-home) and vacation. The staycation concept is simple: save money and stress by having a vacation at home. Even if money isn’t an issue, a staycation can be a great option for planning your next vacation. Here are just a few of the many benefits of staying at home and having a staycation for your next family vacation.
Vacations are meant to give you time away to relax and unwind; get away from the stress of everyday life. But they also often end up causing a fair amount of stress of their own. There’s planning around everybody’s schedule, finding somewhere the whole family will enjoy, getting the best prices on flights and accommodation, packing, travelling, etc. Vacations involve a lot of moving parts and things that can go wrong. And that’s not even beginning to touch on the stress of sticking to a schedule and fitting in everything everybody wants to do while away: visit the beach, go shopping, explore local landmarks, visit theme parks, and more.
A staycation is stress-free. Minimal planning, no schedules to work around, and everybody can do what they want in their own time.
Save for Big Purchases
Going away is costly. The average price to go away for a family of 4 is somewhere in the range of $5,000, split between air travel, accommodation, food, and activities. That is a huge portion of an annual family budget. When having a staycation the food, travel, and accommodation are already accounted for so all you have to worry about is a few activities. Then you can use the additional money to save up for the big purchases such as a new car or swimming pool addition to your property.
Exploring Your Local Town
Regardless of where you live, there is almost sure to be some fascinating and beautiful local landmarks and attractions nearby. Most people, though, aren’t even aware of them or find they never have the time to visit. A staycation can be the perfect opportunity to explore your local Tennessee area and take in some of the sights; you might be surprised by what you discover.
Making additions to your Nashville home to create the perfect staycation location can also have long-lasting benefits to your property and lifestyle outside of vacation time. Poolside vacations are a popular choice with the time spent swimming and relaxing in the water being beneficial both physically and mentally. But what if you had a pool in your own backyard all-year-round?
The price of a Tennessee swimming pool could be less than you may think, especially if you are saving money on expensive vacations. Spending a little more initially to customize your Nashville pool exactly as you want with unique styling, automated cleaning, and entertainment systems can make it a versatile space that you and your family can enjoy year-in-year-out.
