Woman washing her face

Do you feel like you need a vacation? If you do, you may be wanting to go somewhere different, to escape the routine and monotony of your life. Doing so can be expensive, which is why we recommend a staycation! If you don’t know what a staycation is, it’s a vacation where you don’t go beyond your own country, or in this case, your own city. In this week’s Wildwood Park Apartments Blog, we’ve got a few ways you can make the most of staying in Arlington, VA and relaxing!


When you go overseas on vacation, hotels can get expensive. Due to that, you’re more likely to spring for a cheaper housing accommodations just so you can enjoy the travel experience. With a staycation, since you aren’t spending the money on plane tickets, you could use some of the money that you’re saving on splurging on a fancier hotel! Don’t cheap out on your experience!


When you’re at home, you probably cook for yourself. Normally, going out to restaurants (besides fast food) can be an uncommon experience, but since you’re going to be on a staycation, treat yourself! Research some restaurants in the local area or ask your friends where they love to eat, then try it out for yourself! Keep in mind that fancy restaurants doesn’t necessarily mean good food, so keep your eyes and ears out for good food!

Treat Yourself

Part of a vacation is treating yourself, be it pampering yourself at the spa, spending some money at fashion boutiques or outlets, or just sleeping in. Use your staycation as a way to relax and unwind in a city that you’re familiar with. Do your best to shut out the world you’re wanting to escape. Silence your cell phone, or even put it away for the duration. Put yourself and anyone you’re staycationing with first. You deserve it!
