Do you ever imagine yourself taking a vacation? The idea of being free of stress from your job or school is very appealing, but can be an expensive decision to make. We do believe that it’s important to take some time to unwind and relax, which is why we’ve decided to share with you some reasons why you should take a staycation in this week’s Willington Lakes Phase 1 Blog! We hope it’ll help give you a different perspective in taking time for yourself.


Vacations are expensive, especially if you’re going out of the country. Plane tickets and living accommodations can make up a large majority of your money spent, which can lead you to making some sacrifices when it comes to your living situation while abroad. Though spending less on lodging can help you enjoy the activities you’ll experience on vacation, why sacrifice the luxury a hotel can give? While you’re on a staycation, you can use the money you would have spent on plane tickets on a nicer hotel experience. A nice bed to sleep on, luxurious accommodations, and hotel amenities can lend to you being more relaxed!


How many times have you wanted to go out to a nice restaurant but reconsidered at the last minute? Many people choose to save money by making meals at home, but when you’re on a staycation, you have an excuse to try out the many restaurants you’ve been wanting to go to. The point of a staycation is to experience the city you live in (or the surrounding area) as if you’re visiting, so treat yourself!


When your friends come into town, do you ever give them recommendations of things to do in the Orangeburg, SC area? Since you’re going to be taking a staycation, you should try out some of those recommendations! If you’ve done all of those recommendations, it’s time to scout around for more unique activities that you can then recommend to your friends!
