Today’s struggling economy, high gas prices, and even higher air fares make taking vacation trips a real challenge for most peoples’ budgets. But the need to relax and unwind may be greater than ever due to higher job stress, longer days, and increased workloads.
So what’s the answer?
Many people are turning to finding their enjoyment and relaxation closer to home. They are exploring overlooked local attractions and events, spending more time at vacation homes, or even finding pleasure and solitude in their own backyard, hence, the stay-cation.
If a stay-cation sounds like a good alternative for your next well deserved time off, there are a few things you may want to consider, especially if you are planning spending some of that time at home or at a vacation home. Investing a few dollars to make your stay-cation environment a little more enjoyable will pay huge benefits, and not only during your time off, those enhancements will be there for you to enjoy throughout the season and for years to come. So take some of that money you’re saving on a family trip to the Grand Canyon and purchase something the family will be able to enjoy during the stay-cation and beyond.

Two areas that are natural spots to spend countless hours relaxing are decks and docks. Investing in a new or enhancing your existing dock or deck can provide a substantial return in enjoyment received.
