Staycations Are Back in Central New York

You want to give your family the best summer vacation possible, so it’s only natural to find fun things to do together. While trips to faraway beaches or cruises often come to mind, it’s more than possible to experience an unforgettable vacation right in your backyard. With the addition of a pool, you not only boost your curb appeal but also receive the chance to spend more meaningful time with the ones you love. Here, Cannon Pools and Spas explains why staycations are trending in Upstate New York.

Good Reasons to Skip the Flight

As Central New Yorkers ourselves, we understand how much of an endeavor taking a flight can be. Unless you can find a direct flight out of your local airport, getting to your destination can not only be a challenge, but also expensive. From driving hours to a major airport and paying for parking, to spending hours in layovers, there are just simply better ways to spend your time off. This is especially true when you factor in the increased travel costs, pilot shortages, and other issues in the post-pandemic era. Will a lack of airline personnel cause a last-minute trip cancellation? Will the airline overbook your flight and force you to lose your seat?

Avoid all of these inconveniences by installing a new pool in your backyard. Stop worrying about weight limits when packing or what will fit in your carry-on bag. Simply slip on your swimsuit, apply your sunscreen, and enjoy your vacation time in the refreshing water. During a staycation, you can remain steps away from the comforts of home – all while making summer memories that are sure to last a lifetime. You want your family to remember the fun moments – not the stress of traveling far away!

Forget the Cruise This Year

The thought of a cruise sounds tempting, but there are a lot of factors to consider before booking your ticket. There’s always an increased risk of illness on cruise ships, especially when it comes to viruses like COVID-19 or the dreaded norovirus. The last thing anyone wants is to wind up quarantined on a ship or get so sick that the trip is ruined. These worries alone will make you want to go into staycation mode, which is much more enjoyable when you have your own swimming pool.
