Spring Staycation Essentials - Bianca Dottin

Even though I love to travel, I’ve learned to appreciate a good staycation over the years. Let’s be honest, traveling can sometimes be exhausting. Have you ever felt that you needed a vacation after a vacation? I have.

Sometimes you just need a quick getaway from home without the hassle of airport security, loud kids in the car, and a laundry list of things that could go wrong on vacation. Living in Orlando definitely has its pros because there are so many places to choose from. We’re just a short drive away from the beach and we have a handful of theme parks to choose from. Spring is one of my favorite seasons for staycations because our city is a little quieter. When I’m getting ready for our staycation there are a few Spring staycation essentials that I absolutely have to have.

Spring Staycation Essentials

1. Portable charger

How many times have you gone on vacation and needed a charger? Way too many times to count, right? I always have to travel with a portable charger so that I can capture those precious memories.

2. Beach/pool bag

No matter where I end up for my staycation, I always end up near water. Beach bags are perfect because they’re oversized and you can use them for literally anything.

3. Swimsuit

You need a swimsuit because you never know when you’ll end up at the beach, in a pool, or going down your favorite hotel’s waterslide.

4. Snacks

Snacks are an absolute must for me no matter where I’m going. I love something sweet and refreshing. My new favorites are the Cheetos® Sweetos™ and Sweetos™ Froster. The Cheetos® Sweetos™ cinnamon and sugar flavor makes the perfect snack. The icy cold Sweetos™ Froster from Circle K has a fabulous flavor that makes it perfect for any staycation. Talk about Flavored Frozen Fun! For a limited time only you can have a Sweetos combo for only $2.50 when you buy Sweetos™ Froster & Cheetos® Sweetos™. Sweetos™ Froster is an exclusive and limited time offer only found at Circle K.

5. A good book

If you’re like me and you love to have a little quiet time on your staycation then I suggest adding a good book to a part of your Spring staycation essentials checklist. There’s just something about diving into a good book that makes a staycation even more relaxing.

    I need to take a staycation. My portable charger is always in my purse. Nothing worse than having your phone die on you. I’ll need to find some of these Cheetos Sweetos to try.
