Warm weather, a change of scenery, and a few days to relax – there’s a reason we wait all year for a vacation! But with so much build up, it’s often hard for family vacations to live up to all the hype.
According to a 2013 American Express Survey, the average vacation for a family of four in the United States costs $4,580! Skip ahead to 2017, and the cost is only going up.
That’s a ton of money to spend, and while vacations are an important way to bring your family closer together, they only last for a short period of time before you settle back into your daily routine. That’s why a growing number of people are taking steps to make their own backyards as exciting and luxurious as any tropical vacation destination. Creating a backyard oasis featuring a hot tub can create enjoyment for the whole family for years and years.
Here’s Why You Might Want To Consider Taking A Staycation:
Avoid The Stress Of Travel
Escalating costs due to hidden fees, duties and taxes more often than not result in our travel budgets going out the window, no matter how well thought out your trip might be. The stress of travelling with children and with connecting flights can take the fun out of any vacation, even once you’ve arrived. By installing a hot tub and dressing up your backyard, you’ll be able to get the benefits of relaxation you anticipate at your destination, without having to go anyway at all!
77% of hot tub owners see their hot tub as one of the few places they are able to de-stress.
Spending more quality time with your family at home is proven to enhance your physical and mental well-being and give you the opportunity to re-connect with your loved ones. Adding a hot tub to your backyard is the kind of investment that will provide this enjoyment and bonding year-round, instead of just for a week or two.When planning out your backyard oasis, no matter the size, try to carve out different activity zones within the space so that you are able to lounge, dine, and enjoy the natural surroundings as much as possible.
Investing Rather Than Spending
Installing a hot tub is one home improvement that can pay for itself. Not only does it help you reconnect as a family, but it also adds value to your home. Building out more outdoor spaces to entertain and connect can also add to your home’s market value, including an outdoor kitchen space and covered gazebos that you can use as outdoor living rooms.
Other amenities that can layer on the ambiance include fountains, fire pits, and durable all season furnishings.
Voila! Your next destination is only a few steps outside your back-door!
