It’s September and the summer is starting to wind down. However, the reason we may desperately need some time ‘away’ from our daily lives is not. While enticements to travel across state and country lines seems to be at a standstill, we can still enjoy a short staycation right from where we are in Summerville.
A staycation, in case you are unfamiliar, is a mini vacation. Staycations are typically enjoyed for short periods of time in locations close to our homes.
The Benefits of a Staycation
There are several benefits to a staycation. First, the obvious, is to enjoy an escape from your daily routine. Using the time to recuperate or refresh yourself is priceless. Time away from household chores, stressful deadlines and to-do lists is good for the soul.
Another benefit, and one more relevant now than ever, is helping the local economy. By patronizing local small businesses, you are helping stimulate an economy in need.
What About Your Pets?
If you’re like us, one of the first things we think about before traveling is our pets. It is difficult to find places that will allow pets. Or when you do, it may not be a place you prefer to go for a staycation. Or maybe time away from the furry kids is on your agenda, too. That’s where we come in. Did you know that you can enjoy a staycation for one day or one week with our help? Posh Paws Pet Care provides pet sitting in your home so that you can relax while you’re away. Check out our Pet Sitting Services Page for additional details.
Where to Go?
Summerville and the surrounding areas offer a bevy of choices for your staycation selection. The list we’ve compiled is certainly not all-inclusive. For additional ideas or suggestions, contacting the Summerville Chamber of Commerce will also be helpful.

We hope this inspires you to leave life behind for a day or two and to go enjoy a staycation.
