Our family is all about staycations. Have you heard of staycations? They are vacations that you take within your own area. I love to say that it’s a vacation you take where you only need a tank of gas in your Chevrolet to get to your destination. A two or three hour drive can take you to places you’ve never thought possible. You can go from dessert to mountains. From the forest to the beach. A staycation is the best way to find new roads during your R&R. Below are our staycation tips for military families.
Go From Base to Base
One of the best things about being in the military is that you’re able to leave your home base and venture to another base nearby. You’ll still have support built in at your “vacation base” but it will be like a new world to you. I suggest finding a hotel nearby with a military discount, or checking out Airbnb.com for accommodations. Remember, a staycation is still a vacation for you, so you want to make sure that you feel pampered and relaxed. Bonus: if you book an Airbnb location, you can drive on base to get groceries from the commissary.
Double Check Your Discounts
While we all know that we can get military discounts on hotel stays and event tickets, there are so many more offers that can help you create an epic staycation. Check for discounts at local amusement parks, spas, restaurants, movie theaters and more. Also, make sure that the military discount at your hotel is the best discount. Sometimes their special offer for civilians may give you better savings.
Road Trip To The Max
Take full advantage of your car! If you have a truck or SUV, drive up to the beach and have a picnic out of the back. Use the road trip to bond with your family. Play games like eye-spy or even have the kids pay attention to how many different environments they drive through. The time spent in the car during a staycation can be just as fun as the rest of the experience.
Chevrolet is all about family bonding during staycations and military families discovering adventures and finding new roads. During Military Appreciation Month, Chevrolet is offering a spectacular military discount on their vehicles.
Chevrolet honors the military with great discounts because those who serve deserve a great discount. Chevrolet is proud to extend their military discount to Active Duty members, Reserves, Veterans within one year of discharge date and Retirees — including their spouses — of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. This great value gives you a special discounted price below the MSRP. Plus, you can combine this discount with most current offers to save even more. USAA members also receive an additional $750 private offer.
