Staycations at a local hotel or resort

You can book a stay at your favorite local Hotel South Beach or The Biltmore, or some of the many options around the city, where you can stay for the weekend or longer if you’d like. These hotels and resorts have incredible amenities, including top-notch swimming pools, spas, restaurants, bars and clubs, playhouses for kids, and so much more. Nothing beats living in a hotel and not worrying about cooking dinner, cleaning up, or rushing to work. It’s a great way to disconnect for a couple of days.

Escape to a relaxing spa

You could also plan a mini getaway to a local spa. There are plenty that will host you for the weekend or over the span of a few days, giving you the chance to rest, recharge, and feel more relaxed. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a massage, some pampering, and TLC? Treat yourself to a facial, some manicures and pedicures, and indulge in some much-needed self-care during more staycations in your life.
