The most fun part about vacationing is sipping sweet cocktails and dining on delicious food with no guilt. Why must this exist only in another location? Sit in the comfort of your home and whip up some delicious margaritas, serve chips and guacamole, make homemade fish tacos and call it a festive fiesta — who says you can't enjoy vacation food at home?
While on vacation, planning day trips, exploring the city and being adventurous are always on the agenda. So why isn't that something we take advantage of during our time off at home? Have each family member choose an activity, and all partake together. You'll bond as a family and most likely learn something new! Fun ideas are to play outside, go bowling, visit a museum or aquarium, go to the movies, have a bonfire and roast marshmallows and try out a new restaurant.
If you have kids, plan indoor activities to keep them busy. Make crafts together, bake some creative desserts, build a difficult jigsaw puzzle or plan a movie night. If you don't have kids, plan a romantic dinner with your spouse, play board games like Scrabble or Scattergories, get active and play Wii or dance or have a beer tasting or wine and cheese pairing just for the two of you.
No matter what climate you live in, there's always something active to do outside. If it's a cold, go cross country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, build a snowman or have a snowball fight. If you live in a warm climate, go hiking, bike riding, kayaking or rollerblading.
