May 24, 2020 (IANSlife) At present, homes are doubling up as schools, offices and fitness centers, if not more. With cancelled vacations and a deep desire to travel, 'homecations' might be the new way to unwind for the summers, turning your garden or backyard into a holiday destination.
As per a new poll from Zillow, 38 percent of respondents plan to spend more time at home this summer compared to years past as a result of COVID-19. A 'homecation', which is a vacation at home, allows families to make memories and hold onto some summer traditions, without the health, safety and financial concerns that may now come with a traditional vacation.
For a fun homecation, try putting up tents in the backyard, read adventure novels under a lantern-light, add on a singing spree around a small bonfire if your space and weather permit it. You could also make delicious sandwiches and summer coolers for a brunch picnic, and play board games, delve into family legends, or just take a nap. Days can also pass by playing in a kids' pool and filming fun moments. For something simpler, just dim the lights and tune into a movie your family likes.
You can also recreate the atmosphere of a city or region you would like to go to, cook local meals, put some local songs, and visit some city destinations virtually.
