We know this unseasonably-warm weather is probably not a great sign in the bigger scheme of things, but…man, is it pleasant! While most winters (especially here at Crowdtap HQ in NYC) are spent shivering and dreaming of island beach vacations, we’ve so far been feeling pretty happy with some adventurous, spring-y staycations!
The posts we’ve chosen today are inspiring staycations for us (they’re in New York!), but we pulled out the best sentiments so that anyone, anywhere can set up a perfectly adventurous day in the coming months.
Let’s take a look!
Get active outside.
Whether you’re walking or biking, ‘blading or skateboarding, pogo-sticking or something else entirely, when the weather is nice there’s nothing better than taking a little vacation outside your front door. Blogger Jinna Yang from Project Inspo zaps stress and calms her mind by taking a ride on her board – much more accessible than a weekend in Bora Bora. Find an outdoor activity you love and dedicate a beautiful day to practicing and really enjoying it! We think you’ll feel (almost) as refreshed as if you’d spent a day at a spa somewhere surrounded by palm trees.
Have a photoshoot.
One of the best parts of a vacation are the photos. You’re posting to Instagram to (a) have the memories and, (b) make your friends feel a little FOMO (just being honest). But that doesn’t have to be JUST a vacation stipulation! Try grabbing a few friends on a lovely day and heading to a spot you love. Wear your favorite outfit, grab a (tasty) prop, and snap some photos – just like blogger Noelle did!
Have a couch date.
On those not-so-sunny days, when you’re longing for a peaceful day on the beach? We recommend a cozy date with your couch, a la blogger Allegra Rose (pictured here). Invite friends, or snuggle with your S/O. Look through pictures from previous vacations you’ve taken, or start planning a trip for the warmer weather. Enjoy your favorite drinks together, and let the rest of the world fade away for a bit. Your mind will thank you!
