Jealous of all the teachers and kids on spring break trips? Take one of your own! You don’t even have to go anywhere– with just a little planning and creativity you can create a terrific “staycation” at home that’s just as rewarding as a resort. It might even be more restful since you’ll avoid the jet lag and mountain of laundry when your vacation ends. When you live in downtown Fort Wayne apartments like The Riverfront at Promenade Park, you have everything you need for some luxurious downtime in the comfort of your own community.

Really Take Time Off
Taking some steps in advance to prevent unwanted disruptions will ensure you have an actual break from your responsibilities, just as if you were venturing off the grid to a vacation destination. This could mean turning off your phone, completing household chores and errands in advance, activating your email provider’s Out Of Office auto-reply, and making sure you have no other commitments to get in the way of relaxation.

Plan Your Meals
This could be as simple as preparing some freezer meals ahead of time or budgeting to dine out. Alternatively, you might really love spending time preparing those gourmet meals you don’t have time for on busy weeknights. Either way, having a plan for your meals ensures less time for meal prep and more time for fun.

Stock Up on Guilty Pleasures
It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate, but stocking up on some comforts you know you’ll look forward to at the end of your day can be a fun finishing touch to your staycation. This could be a new stack of romance novels, your favorite 90s sitcoms, or a few pints of Ben & Jerry’s.

Plan A Picnic
If you don’t want to bother with cleanup at home, consider taking a picnic to one of the many parks near The Riverfront. In addition to Promenade Park, Old Fort Park, Lawton Park, and Lakeside Park are all highly rated destinations just a short drive from downtown Fort Wayne and offer lovely green spaces with a water view.

Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

Schedule Spa Time
A massage, skin, or nail treatment are a few ways we might treat ourselves on a cruise ship or resort vacation, so why not treat yourself on your vacation at home? Book a special day just for you (and maybe a friend!) at the Woodhouse Spa or Tranquil Touch Spa in Fort Wayne. These spas offer a variety of body and skin treatments designed to leave you feeling energized and rej
