Poll: How Would YOU Spend a Staycation?

There are lots of great options for a fun and restful "Staycation" right here in Essex County. Where would you go if you need a break but don't want to go far?


Sure, going on vacation is fun. But it's also expensive and involves a lot of driving, waiting at airports, sand in your clothes and paying for restaurant meals.

Sometimes, it's far more relaxing just taking some time off close to home.

The term "staycation" has become popular in recent years as people realize they still have fun, explore and "recharge their battery" near home.  With a little imagination and flexibility, you can have a lot of fun, save money and time and still get home in time to watch the next episode of "Game of Thrones"!

Maybe your idea of a great "staycation" is a spa day, followed by a good meal and a night out to hear some music. For families with younger children, a staycation may include a day trip to the zoo or museum, some pizza and a cold beer at your favorite pub. 

This week, let us know where you'll be "staycationing" this year.  Choose one of the options listed in our poll, or clicking the "other" category and tell us in comments section if we've overlooked anything. 

Results will be posted on Friday.
