3 Reasons Why You Should Plan a Staycation

Posted: October 21, 2022 by Silver Spur Master

It’s no secret that the state of the economy is putting a squeeze on everyone’s pocketbook in one way or another. Whether it be at the grocery store, at your favorite restaurant, or on a weekend away with your besties. The bill is starting to creep a little higher with each trip we take. 

But that doesn’t mean you can’t live a little, am I right?! 

You’re still working just as hard as you ever have while struggling to take a break from the endless to-do list of things around the house. A vacation is starting to sound pretty nice, but the price tag on the airfare might have you thinking twice. 

Sound familiar? Never fear, my friend! We have the answer to your troubles. A staycation is the remedy to this inflation situation! 

Now, if you’re thinking, “But, I want to leave my house, not stay in it.” Hear us out! You can take a staycation and not stay at home.

And if your second argument is, “But there’s nowhere to go that’s close by.” We’re here to tell you that there are some beautiful staycation options right under your nose that are less than a 2-hour drive from your front door. 

Did you know that the average DFW resident’s commute is longer than the US average of 26 minutes?

What if we told you that for about the time you’d spend in 2 days commuting to and from work, you could make it to a secluded resort campground with absolutely everything you’d need to have a fantastic vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the metroplex and your day to day life?

The Best Venue for Your Next Staycation

If you’re looking for an amazing option for your next Staycation, look no further. The Silver Spur Resort is the top destination for a family-friendly vacation experience right in the backyard of the DFW Metroplex. With everything from Glamping cabins and treehouses to KOA tent sites to RV hookups, we have everything you need for that much-needed camping or glamping getaway. 

With the Q and Brew restaurant & brewery onsite serving high-quality Texas barbeque straight from our very own smokehouse, and several events hosted on-site each month, the Silver Spur Resort can truly feel like your home away from home while you relax and unwind. 

Enjoy one or many of the several events offered at the resort such as murder mystery events, chuckwagon dinners, escape room experiences, axe throwing, and more! Check our calendar to start planning activities during your next staycation!

If you’re looking for more fun outside of the events that are offered on-site, the surrounding areas have a plethora of options that are bound to keep you entertained. With the world’s largest flea market, water parks, and drive-thru safaris all nearby, there’s enough to keep you living your best life for several days.

3 Reasons Why a Staycation Makes Sense

  1. Staycations are a Money-Saver

Vacations are ex-pen-sive!!! 

Including airfare, meals, entertainment, and lodging, the average vacation costs about $1100 per person. If you’re booking a vacation for a family of 4, you’re looking in the neighborhood of $4,500, and that’s just not monetarily possible for some families. 

Just because the price tag might have you thinking twice about taking a vacation doesn’t mean that you can’t make it happen! At the Silver Spur Resort, we can offer a reasonably priced vacation without sacrificing any of the relaxation or excitement of a standard vacation. 

With the money you can save by staying closer to home, a vacation is back on the table and just as fun as ever!

2. You Still Need a Vacation

More than one-third of all Americans haven’t had a vacation in more than 2 years and over half haven’t vacationed in over a year. So, statistically speaking, you’re burned out and you need a break. 

Don’t let the price tag deter you from the fact that you work hard. You deserve the opportunity to play hard too. Take the time to prioritize your mental health and reconnect with your loved ones on our scenic campground in the comfort and serenity of the great Texas outdoors.

3. You Get More Vacation When You Take a Staycation

Everyone loves the idea of going on vacation until we sit down to plan one. When you’re looking at the calendar and thinking about which days you can take off, you almost always have to plan an entire day for traveling to your destination and an entire day for traveling back. And, if you decide to fly, that doesn’t take into account any delays or cancellations that are so popular with airlines these days. 

When factoring in travel time, your 5-day vacation starts to only look like 3 days of relaxing – and that’s definitely not fair. You should be able to enjoy as much of your vacation as possible.

Want to know the awesome thing about a Staycation? You’re typically not going very far. 

For instance, if you’re local to Dallas and you’re planning a Staycation at our resort (10 out of 10, would highly recommend it), you’re only looking at about an hour of travel time. When you’re only traveling an hour to and from your destination, you still have an entire day of vacation that you can put on the books. 

Maximize the time you’re taking to unwind with a Staycation. You’ve earned it!

What Are You Waiting For?!

Do yourself a favor and take a break from the daily grind with a Staycation. You will never regret taking the time to reconnect with friends and loved ones by making awesome memories at a rustic Texas camping resort. 

Plan the relaxing experience you’ve been dreaming about. We guarantee that you’ll love your stay at the Silver Spur Resort, so much so that a Staycation might become the new vacation option for your family!
