In today’s post-pandemic world, you’re probably looking to take a bit of a holiday and if you’re not yet ready to go abroad then we would definitely recommend giving a staycation a try. Here at 365 Campers, we know first-hand that you can have just as much fun on a staycation as you can on any other type of holiday and they’re a great alternative to consider.
When planning a camping staycation, there are a few things you can do to make your trip away one to remember for all of the right reasons. The different ideas below can help you ensure your staycation is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
Hire a campervan
One of the reasons that staycations often feel a bit underwhelming is because you’re not travelling very far and your weekend away can feel just like any other weekend. A great way for you to change this and make the most out of your staycation is to hire a campervan.
The amazing campervans we offer at 365 Campers can help you unwind and relax with your family. We have an excellent selection for you to choose from, so you can decide which make and model would be best for your staycation. When using one of our campervans, you can easily take the van with you on day trips too, exploring everything the local area has to offer.
Choose the right campsite
When you’re planning a camping staycation, the campsite you choose will play a huge role in how much fun you have. Not all campsites are the same and the facilities can differ from one campsite to another, so it’s important to check what is available on-site.
Location is a really important factor to take into consideration too when choosing a campsite to stay on in your campervan. Whilst the whole point of a staycation is to stay close to home, you might want to stay in a town or a village that you haven’t been to before. You can then visit lots of new places, making your staycation that little bit more special.
Fill your days with fun
Planning early morning visits to the beach, late-night movie trips or all-day theme park excursions, for example, will make your camping staycation so much more fun. Holidays are all about shaking up your normal schedule and getting out of your everyday routine.
No matter where you’re going to be staying in the campervan, there will be a number of different things to see and do in the local area. The activities you arrange don’t have to be elaborate and cost a fortune, sometimes the simplest of days out can be the most enjoyable. If you have kids, ask them what they’d like to do during the staycation too.
Switch off from work
When you’re on a staycation, it can be tempting to just check your emails or pop on to the work intranet to catch up on a couple of bits and pieces. However, this is the exact opposite of what you’re supposed to be doing on a holiday.
Taking some time away from work and allowing yourself to relax and reset, is vitally important for you to perform at your best when you return to the office.
