SPRING BREAK STAYCATIONS

You don’t have to leave to really get away!

Let me guess, it’s spring break but you’re spring broke- or are you just stuck with no place to go? Hey, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while saving lots on travel and lodging! So find a vina and use these tips to craft a stellar staycation!

TREAT YOURSELF

Personally “staycation” to me is a license to spoil and enjoy myself! Use your break to get that massage you’ve been dreaming of! You can also invest in some fresh nail color for spring, or spend an extra long morning at your favorite brunch spot. Bring a vina along for double the fun!

GET OUTSIDE

Chances are, you spend most of your time at work or school indoors, so getting some sun exposure is a sure way to break from your usual rhythm. Plan a day trip whether it’s a bonfire at the beach, a picnic in the park, a bike ride through the city, or even a long hike through the woods! Finding a destination nearby will make you see your home in a whole new way.

BE A TOURIST AT HOME

Speaking of seeing home in a new way- if you can’t visit someplace new, you can at least pretend to be a newbie in your own town. What’s that place every visitor talks about but you always avoid? What is your city or region most known for- the best chicken and waffles at the local diner or that charming art installation you should probably know more about? Whatever it is, grab a camera, don a touristy ensemble, and enlist a vina to help you on a photo scavenger hunt for your hometown’s attractions.

CONQUER YOUR READING LIST

Spring break is a great time to tackle that book you’ve been wanting to read – or the home project you’ve been thinking about forever, the cooking class you’ve been salivating over, the craft you’ve been hesitant to start because you might get hooked. Whatever it is you’ve been putting off for lack of free time, do it! 

SO MANY VINA DATES

Finally, what’s a better way to spend your week off than with your vinas? Pour wine, splurge on fancy cheese, reconnect with old friends, and meet some new!

Minnesota born and raised, I love my St. Paul and Minneapolis. Art museums, orchestra concerts, walking trails along the Mississippi, and can I say food enough? We have it all. When I'm not strolling the neighborhood or chowing on the best pizza outside of Italy, I'm striving to grow as a writer, artist, friend, yogi, homemaker (I really do try), and in my career as a student advisor. Or I'm traveling, because who doesn't love to see the world? Instagram @bekahjwarren
