What Does the Term “Staycation” Actually Mean?

Family Trip, Linda Braucht (b.20th Century/American), Computer Graphics

I always thought a “staycation” meant you stayed at home and just napped on the couch.  But I guess not everyone agrees with that, because almost a third of people say you don’t HAVE to stay home on a staycation



21% of us think it’s when you stay somewhere ELSE in your city or town, like a hotel or Airbnb.  And another 10% said you can even leave town.  And as long as you’re not THAT far from home, it still counts.



Overall, more than half of Americans say they’ve done a staycation before.
