I love to travel the world and my own backyard. Staycations when my kids were little were fun and far less stressful on my mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health, as well as my pocketbook, than traveling to a different city. Since we lived near Boston, I’d secure a hotel room (with an indoor pool of course) and explore the city as if we were tourists. Sometimes I literally worked down the street from where we stayed on vacation.
What is not to love! Seriously, great food and you’re surrounded by books. Always fun to explore with a friend the silly gifts and notecards as well but don’t be shy about purchasing a book and sitting at the counter by yourself to read and enjoy breakfast, lunch or even dinner.
