Readers’ Choice: Favorite Places to Spend Your ‘Staycation’

You don’t have to leave your home town to have a great break. So what local attractions top your itineraries?

Let’s face it, sometimes you just need a break and not a big vacation with hefty travel fees and the dilemma of getting that big pile of clothes into a way-too-small suitcase. In those cases, locals go the ‘staycation’ route, exploring the many attractions right in their home towns.

This week let’s find out what local ‘staycation’ haunts are at the top of people’s itineraries.

Readers’ Choice is a new weekly feature where we ask you – our readers – to tell us your top picks on the businesses and local attractions that get your loyalty.

Each Monday we’ll list our nominees recommendations. Did we leave your go-to spot off the list? Go ahead and add it in comments.

Here are our nominees:
