Didn’t get a chance to take that dream vacation this July? Are all of your summer Fridays used up? You’ve still got plenty of time to plan an amazing (and less costly) stay-at-home vacation, or “staycation.” We’ve compiled a list of fun and relaxing ideas to help you kick back and enjoy your time off.
