Just hearing the word "vacation" should transport us to a sublime state of stress-free ease. But it's hard to forget the work that's involved in getting away. There's the pre-trip laundry, the packing, security lines, delayed flights, jet lag, cranky kids and, oh yes, the gargantuan pile of post-trip laundry upon return. It's no wonder we often joke about needing a vacation after our vacation. Instead, why not trade a couple of vacation days for staycation days and skip the hassle without losing out on the family fun and relaxation? Try some of these staycation ideas, compliments of Donna Bozzo, author of "What The Fun?! 427 Simple Ways to Have Fantastic Family Fun," and staycations might very well become your go-to family vacay.
