Vacations can be an expensive with the hotel expenses among other things. It can also be tasking to find the time to indulge in a vacation. The good news is that you can have a less costly vacation in your own house. The everyday facilities that we take for granted can help us relax just like any vacation can. Try using the following to have that Zen moment.

Jacuzzis and swimming pools

What can be more relaxing than having a dip in a Jacuzzi or a swimming pool at your back yard? Having a Jacuzzi installed may be a bit expensive but is way less costly than months of vacationing in hotels and different countries. Swimming pools are a common feature in most homes and you can relax in or outside the pool without having to leave the comfort of your home.

Gazebos

Having a gazebo in your backyard can provide you and your family a perfect spot to just relax and read a book or just rest away from your busy life style. Make sure it is situated in a quiet area of the backyard to keep it peaceful.

Back door camping

This is perfect when there are kids involved. Build tents, use those sleeping bags you had stored away and have a bon fire just to create the effect of a real camping adventure. Keep the kids entertained by inviting their friends over or just roast marshmallows over the open fire while singing. This will give you time to bond with family.

Having a barbecue

This is perhaps on of the cheapest vacation ideas. All you need is barbecue among other meals and invite friends o just have the family with you and you have vacation without spending too much or going away on a plane.
