A staycation is a type of vacation that involves staying at home rather than traveling somewhere. Those taking a staycation can either enjoy relaxation and entertainment at their own home, take day trips in their area, or a combination of these.

Staycations can be taken for a variety of reasons, including the inability to afford a vacation away from home, personal obligations in one's hometown, the medical inability to travel, or other reasons.
