How to: A Weekend Summer Staycation on Chicago’s North ShoreHow to: A Weekend Summer Staycation on Chicago’s North Shore (Glenview, Northbrook, Northfield, Glencoe, Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Evanston)
Many of us on Chicago’s North Shore spend weekends away from home during these warm summer months as travel without snow is so much easier! But not every weekend can be spent away. So how do you get away, when you can’t get away?
One of the best things about going on vacation is spending quality time with the people you love and want to reconnect with – whether that’s friends, your spouse or kids. The first thing you want to do is disconnect! Literally, turn off your phone, power down your tablets and laptop, but up an away message on your email. With technology, out of the way you can focus on what and who is in front of you. Indulge… If you’re really committed to stay-cationing, take an extra day off to catch up on “home things” so you can return to your normal schedule stress free.

Break routine. Weekends can be busy with shuttling kids, bustling errands and picking up from last week and preparing for the week ahead. Break your normal weekend routine by letting your typical to do list go by the wayside. If you want to indulge… splurge on a deep house cleaning scheduled before your weekend staycation and treat yourself to new bathroom linens so you get the hotel feel but don’t have to lift a finger! You could also hire a chef to prepare a lovely dinner at home for your family. Eat alfresco if the weather is nice. Have fresh flowers delivered!
Get out, explore and have fun! Now is the perfect time to explore something new in your area. While it’s easy to rely on your favorite, close by restaurants and entertainment options, this is the perfect time to break tradition and try something new for date night, family fun or girl’s night out. With so many new options always popping up on the North Shore, this should be an easy task!
A little planning goes a long way to making your staycation in Chicago’s North Shore a memorable and meaningful time.
