Stay in a Nearby Hotel


Hotels these days can have lots of amenities: restaurants, a pool, a game room, a library, even a tennis court. Staying in a nearby hotel for a night or two can be a great way to feel like you're getting away, without going far at all. A day full of swimming and sports, and maybe heading to a nearby movie theater, can feel like a full vacation at a fraction of the price. Plus, when you get back to your room, it'll be all clean and tidy. That's a getaway for any busy parent.
