Winter Staycation Ideas
When you think of a winter outdoor retreat or winter staycation ideas, what comes to mind? A great way to take a break from the last minute holiday shopping and excitement if you can’t venture too far from home is to find a nearby trail or park, take a neighborhood stroll or bike ride, or relax and enjoy the backyard retreat you spent all that time creating this summer. If you’re planning to take a First Day Hike when 2018 arrives, maybe you can do a preview hike of the location you’ve scoped out for January 1. For a coast-to-coast listing, Stateparks.org is a good resource showing parks from Maine to California who are hosting guided hikes on New Year’s Day, or you can search your state’s department of natural resources.
Outdoor Retreat Ideas for a Winter Staycation
If you’d rather not venture out, maybe the best outdoor retreat is right in your backyard! If your Florida pergola is surrounded by palm trees and a pool, your winter staycation is only a few steps out your back door. All that time you spent during the hot summer months to make your backyard your very own resort is now paying off. Choose your favorite read, music playlist, or movie and take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the season. If you’re enjoying your backyard oasis in Nebraska or other northern locale, it may be a little snowy, but when you’ve got a 12×20 Big Kahuna pergola kit over top your spa, you’ve got a year-round staycation spot!
