A lot of people would think a one day vacation would be crazy. But then again, a lot of people would think this is a great idea. Here it is. Check out of the real world and head to some place fun, exciting, get outside, do stuff, shut down from work and dial into activities. But can you really have fun in just one day? Yes.
The One Day Vacation – What It Could Look Like
For an upcoming trip, we decided that 1 day would be perfect. A great way to get the kids and us out of the normal routine and into something more fun. Here’s what it will look like.
We’ll leave very early in the morning. Likely the kids will still be asleep when we leave the house.
Start Right When You Get There
After check-in, we’ll head straight to the pool and the water. Staying active is a great way to work up an appetite, so we’ll grab some lunch overlooking the water. Afternoon of activities, no naps unless it’s on the go in the stroller or in the arms.
Finish First Day Strong
Go to a relaxing dinner at a cool local place. Order something you wouldn’t normally order.
Second Day = More Fun
Order room service (especially if you have Hyatt Diamond status) or at the restaurant on the water. Plan something different than the day prior for the mid-morning. Hit up the pool / water in the early afternoon and order food by the water.
Take the last option to get back home arriving late and exhausted. Make the most of the time you have together and in the new place
A 1 day vacation may not seem like a great way to spend time with the family. But for us, and for this trip, it will be just a perfect way to get away and experience something new.
How about you? Have you ever taken a 1 day vacation just to do something new or get out of town? Let’s hear it, drop a note in the comments.
