2 The WORLD ~ 2021 Summer Stay-cation


Planning A Staycation

Although we all have days off that are simply a day off, with no plans for work or play, you want to

approach a staycation as if it’s a vacation. The Health Sessions recommends a number of ways to make a

staycation enjoyable, exciting, relaxing and all the things a good vacation offers. So much of that comes

down to how well you plan.

DO YOUR RESEARCH

Do as much research for a staycation as you would for a vacation.

Find out what attractions there are in your city through the

convention and visitors website, community center and your local

newspapers events page and find out whats happening. Make

a list of things you’ve always thought about doing but never got

around to.

MAKE A SCHEDULE

Take the time off work, mark the staycation on the calendar and

treat it as you would a vacation for which you were leaving town.

Plan out your days with activities you want to do. Want to spend an

afternoon napping, reading a book or binging on Netfli chedule

it, guilt-free. But don’t be afraid to change up the schedule or leave

free time either.

DELEGATE

Involve your children in the planning. Let them pick activities

they want to do, research nearby attractions or plan a backyard

Why Staycation?

Staycations are a trend taking hold across the country. Different

from traditional vacations that encompass traveling long distances

by road or air to reach your destination, staycations are about

uncovering the magic in your own backyard.

raffic, road construction, waiting in airports and losing luggage

are just some of the stresses that can dampen your fun on a traditional

vacation. Often vacationers come home more exhausted and

stressed than when they left.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that “paradise” does

not have to be a location but rather a state of mind. The perfect vacation

makes you feel a certain way — rested, relaxed and stress free.

Those feelings, along with some adventure and fun, can absolutely

be achieved on a staycation in your neck of the woods.

SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS

Imagine being on vacation while helping other people achieve

their dreams. That would be a good feeling.

Your staycation will benefit not only you but many of your local

community businesses. Small community businesses depend on

locals for support, and anything beneficial to them will impact the

entire community — including your family. Everyone knows your

dollar will reach farther, because that money goes right back into

the local economy.

Local businesses owners and employees also will be encouraged

by your support. Many of them are your neighbors and friends.

Your advocacy brightens their day and helps you stay updated on

what’s happening in your community.

campout or sleepover in the living room. This helps them to get

more excited about their vacation as well.

SPLURGE A LITTLE

You don’t have to spend every night at home or eat every meal

around your kitchen table. A staycation is a great time to splurge

on a restaurant you might not normally go to. Or, you can spend

one night in a local hotel, enjoying the swimming pool, continental

breakfast and changed surroundings.

GET READY

You may not need to pack, but do grocery shopping and take

care of necessary tasks beforehand. Knowing your fridge is full

and you don’t need to worry about running errands will allow you

to relax more. Let extended family, your boss and others know that

you won’t be available during this time. Allow yourself to unplug,

just as you would if you were on a beach, hiking a mountain or

exploring a foreign country.

Explore Local History

Discovering local history is a traditional vacation activity. What better way to learn about

the history around you then by diving into a journey through the past on a staycation?

There are many local organizations dedicated to showcasing

the historical perspectives of your home region. You just have to

look for them. Start by spending a day at the local library, heading

to your downtown museum or taking a local tourism tour around

some of the hotspots your area has to offer. You will wrap up your

staycation feeling more well-informed than you started.

LOCAL MUSEUMS

Museums can bring us up to speed on history. They offer the

perfect forum for providing both education and entertainment for

your family.

While all the different types of museums might not be available

in your town, you likely wont have to travel far to find one that

celebrates the history, cultural background and landmarks around

you. Take your children and friends with you as you educate

yourselves on the historic gems that together tell the story of your

region.

LOCAL LIBRARIES

Libraries contain volumes of books of every genre, and there

should be lots of information and stories on your local history.

Check one out and you have a perfect staycation day enjoying the

peace and quiet of the local library.

Or check out a collection of books for the week and head home.

Put on your favorite pajamas and plop in a chair. Make some tea,

cover yourself with a blanket and encapsulate yourself in local

history.

TOURS

Tours of historic districts and homes are another option to catch

up on local history. Some tours and guides even use horses or boats

to discover historic areas. Part of the trip could include local places

to dine or shop. Enjoying the weather and scenery on these historic

adventures only adds to the experience.

History buffs on staycations will be thrilled with these out-ofthe-ordinary

adventures. Even if history isn’t your favorite subject,

you may find yourself enoying learning about local times gone by.

Savor the Local Flavor

One reason people like to go on vacations is to “get away from it all.” You can do

the same thing on your staycation, though, by getting outside your comfort zone

and exploring new tastes and cuisines right in your own city.

LOOK ONLINE

earch the internet and online newspaper listings to find new,

exciting places to eat near your home. There are countless websites

and mobile phone apps that let diners review their favorite — and

least favorite places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can

search by food type, price and location to see which restaurants are

rated highest by other diners in your area.

ake the reviews with a grain of salt, though. ike any online

source, the information cant always be trusted. ook for trends in

the diners comments, such as lots of people raving about their ecellent

service or the flavor of their rib-eye steaks. A single positive

or negative review can be misleading, but consistent comments

from lots of different people can give you a better idea of what to

expect.

BE ADVENTUROUS

Never tried sushi? Wondering what all the buzz is about that new

Mexican restaurant? Want to try something more exotic?

The great thing about eating out as part of your staycation is that

it lets you eperience something completely new, ust as if you had

left town.

It can be relaing to eat at a place youre familiar with, but its

more entertaining — and more of an escape — to try new restaurants

and eotic types of food. ven traditional American restaurants

can be eciting if youve never eaten there before.

Another plus If you fall in love with the new cuisine or restaurant,

you can return again and again, even after the staycation has

come to an end.

SEEK OUT FOODIES

For many people, food is about more than a simple meal. odays

diners are getting serious about what they eat and turning the

act of dining into a more memorable experience.

If youre a real food and drink aficionado or want to become

one — you can take up dining as a serious hobby. There are all

sorts of clubs, books and shows devoted to eploring and

preparing great food.

Some cities even offer restaurant tasting tours that let food lovers

experience a wide variety of tastes in one night.

No matter how serious you are about food, its always a good

idea to savor the flavor of your own hometown.

Get Out and Take a Hike

Summer’s here and it’s time to get outside. One of the easiest ways to get out is by taking a hike.

It can be intimidating when looking at hikes, trails, gear and

more, but don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Here’s what you need

to know to get going down the trail.

FIND A PLACE TO HIKE

There are places all around to take a hike, if you just know

where to look. Start by keeping an eye on parks around you,

whether national, state or city parks. Look for nature trails that are

stable with good footing (at least until you get more experienced).

You can also turn to local maps, websites and even apps like

AllTrails.com.

GET YOUR GEAR

Hiking looks like just walking, but it requires a little more

specialized gear. If you’re going off even, paved trails, you might

want to invest in a quality pair of boots that match the terrain and

the weather you’re going to be hiking in. You may also want a pair

of hiking poles, and those need to be matched to your abilities and

to the terrain you’re going to be in. A good backpack is a great

thing to have to carry your water, energy bars and anything else

you might need. Try on all your gear in the store before you buy.

SAFETY FIRST

efore you take your first hike, check in with your doctor to see

how far it’s safe for you to go at this time. It may be prudent to

start with lighter loads and shorter hikes. In your backpack, you

want to carry lots of water to stay hydrated, as well as plenty of

healthy snacks. You may also want to pack sunscreen, bug spray

and a first aid kit.

Consider also taking a friend with you on your hike. Not only

will they be good company, but it’s someone to help you in case

anything goes wrong. As you get more experienced, you can venture

out on your own.

Enjoy the Outdoors

A true adventure may be closer than you think

Vacations are all about taking a break, relaxing and reconnecting

with yourself and loved ones. If you don’t want to travel this year,

what better way to unwind than looking to the great outdoors —

right outside your door.

CAMPING, FISHING

Spending time outdoors is a great way to save money while still

getting a break from daily life. You don’t have to travel far to have

a good time, either. Whether your hometown is near lakes, streams,

trails, mountains or campgrounds, everyone should get the chance

to enjoy nature near their own house.

Camping and fishing are two of the most popular options. reat

for both families and individuals, a minimal investment in equipment

and training can bring you a lifetime of outdoor memories.

It’s important to buy good outdoor equipment that will last,

though. Save money by sticking close to home this year, and save

even more by choosing quality gear that you can use for years to

come. Its best to buy camping and fishing equipment from wellknown

manufacturers, with a good warranty, and from trusted local

retailers.

GOLFING

Another great way to spend your staycation is on the links.

olf is one of the most popular outdoor activities in America,

and while it’s not always cheap, it’s far more affordable than

traveling.

This year, instead of spending your vacation budget on airfare

and gas, think about investing in new clubs, new golf clothes and

green fees for some of your favorite local courses. You can have a

great time on the golf course without straying far from home.

OTHER SPORTS

Luckily, sports fans have plenty of ways to stay busy on a staycation.

If you’re going to stay close to home, buy tickets to see your

favorite teams in action. By saving money on travel, you should

be able to afford to splurge on better seats or more popcorn and

hotdogs for the kids.

You can also plan your time off from work to coincide with big

games. If you want to take off a few days while your team’s archrival

is in town, plan ahead. Buy some great tickets and savor the

chance to be a superfan while saving money at the same time.

pick up an Art Walk guidebook and begin your walk at any of the presenting

venues (look for the Art Walk balloons!). June’s Art Walk will feature

19 venues, a COVID-era high, including two new venues. The event

features a variety of art, ranging from vinyl art by Matt Denton on display

on Rebel Heart to pandemic inspired collage by Sally Smith on display

at umping Raindrops. Several venues will reopen to the public for the

first time since the pandemic began. The walk begins on riday, une

4, and viewing times vary by venue. or more information, visit www.

Outdoor Games

Summer is all about being outside, but it’s way more than just sunning and swimming. It’s a great season

for taking u a ne outdoor game or sort to el you get moing and stay fit

Not all of them need expensive specialized equipment. Furthermore,

a lot of used sporting goods are great for beginners and can

be snagged for a song at garage sales and thrift stores. Here is a

brief history of some outdoor games you might be playing this

year.

FRISBEE

On Thanksgiving Day 1937, Walter Frederick Morrison and his

future wife, Lucille, had a grand time tossing a popcorn can lid

back and forth. They were playing the same game at the beach with

a cake pan (worth 5 cents). A passerby offered them 25 cents for

the pan. Morrison saw dollar signs — well, at least cents — in a

20-cent-per-pan profit. After World War II, Morrison and business

partner Warren Franscioni started making flying plastic discs

before ending their partnership in 1950. Morrison formed his own

company, American Trends, and made Flyin-Saucers and the Pluto

Platter flying discs. He later sold the company to Wham-O, who

coined the term Frisbee.

HORSESHOES

The game of pitching horseshoes at a target may have derived

from a game of quoits played by Roman officers during the occupation

of Britain. But, lacking the proper quoits, it’s thought

the Romans used horseshoes instead. Peasants in medieval Britain

also used horseshoes in improvised games of quoits. Colonists

brought the game with them to North America. In 1926, the game

was governed by the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association of

America and even now holds the national and world championship

tournaments.

VOLLEYBALL

Volleyball was invented by William G. Morgan in 1895. Morgan

was the physical director of the Young Men’s Christian Association

in Holyoke, Massachusetts. He was looking for an indoor sport for

businessmen who found basketball too vigorous. Official rules for

the game were written by the YMCA and the NCAA in 1916, and,

in 1928, the United States Volleyball Association was formed.

I SPY


Get your Pups Outside

Summer is a fun season for the whole family, including its four-legged members.

While there are some concerns with bringing your furry friends

with you on your summer outings, it can be done safely.

DOGS IN THE HEAT

Dogs, like, humans, can get too hot outside. Some signs of

overheating include excessive panting; dry, pale gums; increased

salivation; an erratic or rapid pulse; confusion; weakness; diarrhea;

vomiting and maybe even rectal bleeding. If you notice any of

these signs, move your pet to a cooler area immediately. Remember

that dogs with heavy coats and shorter muzzles tend to get

hotter faster than other breeds.

Reduce your dog’s temperature by putting cool, wet towels over

its neck, under the armpits and between its hind legs. If there’s a

safe stream or pond nearby, use it to help cool them down. Offer

your pup plenty of cool, fresh drinking water, but don’t force it to

drink. Don’t give your dog ice, as that can put them into shock.

Take your dog to the vet as soon as you can.

Walking outside can also hurt your dog because paved surfaces

can get hot enough to burn sensitive paws. To see how hot the

pavement is, put your own, bare hand on the roadway. If your palm

burns, it’s too hot for your pup’s paws. Remember than sand and

other types of dirt may also get too warm to be comfortable for

your dog.

COUNTERTOPS

BRING FOOD AND WATER

Just like you pack plenty of snacks and water for yourself, make

sure you bring appropriate kibble, treats and water for your pup,

too. Hit your local pet store and look for water bottles that also

double as a dog-friendly bowl or look for a collapsible bowl that

you can stash in your backpack.

BE AWARE OF LOCAL ORDINANCES

If you’re traveling outside of your neighborhood, be aware

that other areas may have different rules and restrictions about

dogs. Some beaches, for example, prohibit dogs whether on or

off leashes. Other areas require you to produce or be able to show

proof of a current rabies vaccination. Some cities and towns may

prohibit certain breeds. While you’re planning a trip, make sure

you check on local laws in addition to planning plenty of rest stops

for you and your pooch.

FINDS OF A LIFETIME

Garage sales are full of all kinds of unique items for sale. You

can find clothes that are no longer for sale in stores, toys and

games from your childhood and other items. And, every once in a

while, you can find genuinely valuable items for a song.

15TH CENTURY CHINESE BOWL

A shopper at a 2020 Connecticut garage sale found a blue-andwhite

Chinese floral bowl decorated with lotus, peony, chrysanthemum

and pomegranate blossoms. hey snagged it for . It later

sold for more than 21,000, because it wasnt any ordinary bowl.

It was a 1th century antique commissioned by the Chinese imperial

court during the Ming dynasty.

Its a lotus bowl, named not for the paintings but for its shapes

resemblance to a lotus bud. It was made between 10 and 12

during the Yongle mperor, a period noted for its distinctive and

celebrated porcelain techniques. he small bowl was ust more

than 6 inches across. Its unknown how it came to be at the sale,

but only si other similar bowls are known to have survived, auction

house othebys says. hose bowls are housed by places such

as the National Palace Museum in aipei, the ritish Museum and

the ictoria Albert Museum.

for was hiding one of 00 official copies from the first printing

of the eclaration of Independence. Only 2 similar copies remain,

and most of those are privately owned. It fetched more than 2

million at a 1991 othebys auction.

his was a record for any printed Americana. It was far and

away the highest price for historical Americana ever, said auctioneer

and othebys enior ice President avid Redden.

he document later sold again in 2000 for more than million,

going on the road as part of Norman ears eclaration of Independence

Road rip.

$5 WARHOL?

A ritish businessman bought some ertrude tein drawings at

a 2012 as egas garage sale. He says he was getting the purported

tein drawings frame when he found another picture signed Andy

Warhola.

he seller of the drawings said she used to babysit Warhol, and

the businessman says the drawing is one of the pop artists earliest

works.

heres some controversy, however, as the artists family disputes

his story and the Warhol Authentication oard never verified

the drawing.

You may not get as lucky as these buyers, but you can find your

own treasures at your local garage sale.


Shopping at a Flea Market

Flea markets or swap meets are places where many different sellers gather to sell items, especially used

or handmade items. They tend to be all-weekend affairs, and some may raise money for charity. Flea

markets can be either outdoor or indoor, and bartering is usually acceptable. Here are some tips for

soring great deals at te ea market

CARRY CASH

This isn’t the place to whip out your card. Cash is king, and to

pull off your no-disposable-income ruse, carry small bills unless

you’re looking to make a big purchase like home furnishings. Keep

your cash separated so you dont flash a big wad to the vendor,

even if it is all 1 bills and bills.

THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE DEALS

Hit the flea market when the doors open to make sure you get

what youre looking for, at the best price. If you arrive late, you

may get a good deal as vendors look to liquidate before packing

up, but you also risk some of the best vendors selling out or their

goods being picked over. For the best selection, get there early.

DECIDE ON THE SPOT

When you can, make a decision quickly and stand by it. Walking

away could mean missing out on a deal or it could mean the price

going up. If the item is large, the seller should be willing to hold

it for you so that you can enjoy the rest of the market. And if the

answer is no, stick with it. If the vendor wont meet your targeted

price, move on. here are other fish in the sea.

BRING A SHOPPING BUDDY

Have a friend come with you to bounce ideas off of and to

provide a second pair of hands and eyes. A friend can also help you

stake out items and get larger buys home safely. Friends can also

help you haggle for better prices. Work out your strategy before

you go.

the location of certain items, the names and numbers of vendors

who may have something worth looking at offsite, where you

parked, and a list of what you’re looking to buy today. Make your

lists, check them twice, and get the best deals you can.
