Want to get away? Perhaps it's time for a "staycation." Be a tourist in your own town and save money while reducing your carbon footprint. According to The Green Life:
An ideal "staycation" should be work-free and fun, so skip unpleasant chores, unplug the phone, and hide your laptop if necessary. Set a festive mood by donning your vacation duds and scheduling day hikes, bike rides, and visits to local museums.
Did you know:
A vacation can be an expensive affair, easily costing hundreds of dollars a day on fuel, food and accommodation. Those long trips also have an environmental impact; such as greenhouse gas emissions associated with the travel. A 1,000 mile round trip in a medium sized car will crank out around half a ton in carbon dioxide emissions. A 2,500 mile return flight, over double the emissions.
