With the Holiday Weekend in full swing, it’s a great time to hit the roadways and visit family, enjoy some relaxation and fun. If you’re like me, budget is a factor on whether or not to take the plunge or sit at home this Labor Day weekend.
Everyone’s talking about the Staycation, but I’m going to get a little more creative and encourage all of you to look at the options of a Statecation. There are countless opportunities for adventure, education and rejuvenation within the borders of your own home state.
I live in the BEST State to have such adventures, Texas. Yes, I am a little biased, but I’ll be the first to say I’ll always be a Southern Girl at Heart. For instance, just an hour away from my little town, I can enjoy Galveston with fun family activities such as: Moody Gardens, Beaches, Shopping, and even Schlitterbahn water park.
Whether you’re looking to visit a historical landmark or spend a long weekend at the beach a Holiday Inn is close by to accommodate your family. You’ll experience the changes transforming its hotels world wide including signature bedding with “soft” and “firm” pillows and power showers in the bathroom, just to name a few, all with a more contemporary look and feel. Holiday Inn boasts more than 2,500 locations in the US, offering a fun and easy getaway in every state.
Last year, we traveled with Daddy on the Shores of South Carolina and each Holiday Inn we stayed in welcomed us and helped my family feel like we were well taken care of. My children’s favorite part was the Room Service! Before Fall sets in and the busy schedules begin, you should definitely keep your State Activities in mind and create some families memories on a budget.
So, what are your plans on this Holiday Weekend? Are you doing some local traveling?
