A “staycation” is defined as “a vacation that is spent at one’s home enjoying all that home and one’s home environs have to offer.” This term was popularized after the economic crisis of 2008 when fuel prices were at a record high. Families couldn’t afford to go on long road trips or expensive vacations abroad. Among the getaway options for summer staycations are excursions to local sites like museums, parks, zoos, aquariums and libraries, participating in activities including, bowling, camping, swimming and fishing, attending sporting events such as baseball games, golf tournaments and bike races, or going out to dinner and a movie. Backyard fun like barbecues, yard games and soaking in a pool are among the many ways to keep kids entertained without getting in the car. In this Sunday page from 2010, Hi and Lois debate the pros and cons of staying at home or going on a summer vacation. Hi and Lois Sunday page, June 27, 2010. Hi and Lois Sunday page, June 27, 2010. We hope all of our readers have made plans for the summer, both at home and on the road. – Brian Walker
