Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? This is one of my top ten ideas for fun and relaxation close to home.

Have you own film festival at home in the family room. 

*  Rent or check out DVD’s from your local library and watch movies together.

*  Provide healthy snacks and drinks and allow time for family interaction and discussion between movies.

*  If you really want to have fun with this set up a red carpet and take turns “interviewing” each other.  The kids will love it.

Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? This is one of my top ten ideas for fun and relaxation close to home.

Hike or Bike on local trails. 

*  Get a good trail map of your area and start exploring.

*  If hiking in an unfamiliar area, start with a beginner’s trail, whether you think you are a beginner or not.

*  Take along water, appropriate food and sunscreen.

*  Be sure you allow plenty of time to finish your hike or ride and get off the trail by sunset.
