Stuck at home this weekend (while everyone on your social feed seems to be off gallivanting at the beach)? Don’t despair, guys—indulge in an epic staycation instead. Here, 50 little ways to escape without ever leaving your zip code.
And spend the day lounging around in your backyard.
Fact: Food is more fun when it’s served on a stick.
Rent a projector and set up an impromptu drive-in.
And pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in nature.
And fight the urge to check your inbox.
Commit to this whole “do not disturb” thing.
The world’s ills can wait until Monday.
Go ahead, splurge a little.
With all your favorite feel-good jams.
Bring on the beauty rest.
Staycation laziness is best when shared.
No one needs full-face makeup and a flatiron on vacation.
And make that your only afternoon plan.
And pay extra attention to pretty presentation.
Chilled rosé non-optional.
And go for a top-down cruise.
Touristing is fun.
Whether that means your local watering hole or calling your friend with a pool.
Stay hydrated, fancy-lady style.
And invite the neighbors over.
If you really need a change of scenery.
Or throw a dance party in your living room.
Because it’s vacation, dammit.
And get lost in your own city.
And lose yourself (and the day) in a great book.
No destination necessary.
Morning, noon and night. (Heck, you’ve got nowhere to be.)
The fluffier (and more scandalous), the better.
Three cheers for nostalgia.
All you need to do is simmer lemon water.
Crisp corners = hotel polish.
And opt for open air dining for every meal.
The more votives, the better.
No sore losers allowed.
And see how many constellations you can spot.
And spring for the waffle cone.
Hit up your local farm (or blueberry patch) and bring home a bounty.
Or a brewery, if you’re more of a beer gal.
Preferably one that tastes like the beach.
And sunbathe in the backyard/roof/deck.
Or another new neighborhood, and try a dish you've never had before.
Better yet, invite some friends to join too.
For a pretty new perspective.
And make a night of it (think: a classic Italian meal, Italian wine and an Italian movie afterward).
Get your culture fix.
#Shameless and proud.
And camp in your backyard like you used to as a kid.
