How to Plan a “Staycation”

Often, we get into the habit of thinking that we have to go somewhere exotic to truly be on vacation. But who says you need to leave the city to relax and have some fun? You can stay right here in Newark, New Jersey, and have a great mini-vacation with some help from your friends here at Value Van & Car Rental. Listed below are three ways we like to unplug and enjoy the city on a “staycation.”

Planning a "Staycation" in Newark

1. Play the Tourist

When you live in a city for long enough, you start to take for granted all the fun and interesting things it has to offer. New Jersey is full of fun museums, attractions, entertainment venues, pro sports teams, and restaurants. You can enjoy a day at the Newark Museum, or attend a New Jersey Devils game. Maybe there’s another attraction you’ve seen for years but never enjoyed. Take off your Jersey native hat and pretend you’re new in town.

2. Plan a Day in the City

If you live in Newark, you may not make it to New York City as much as you’d like. Go ahead and book a hotel downtown, even if it’s for just one night. Enjoy downtown life, being able to walk down the street for great shopping, food, and more. The options are endless, and you may end up leaving downtown, wishing you could stay longer. (But don’t worry. You don’t live far, and can come back for more.)

3. Rent a Car

Sometimes, instead of a change of location, a change of transportation can be just the thing to make it feel like a vacation. Instead of spending your staycation driving around in your minivan, consider renting a car. You’ll be able to fully escape the stressors of everyday life when you drive a car that doesn’t have goldfish ground into the carpet. Consider a luxury rental car from Value Van & Car Rental for a comfortable and quiet ride, smooth handling, and a sleek exterior.
