Unwind and Explore: Your Ultimate Guide to a Refreshing Staycation in Fresno


Hey there, fellow Fresno residents! Are you feeling the need for a vacation but dreading the travel hassle or low on vacation funds? Well, we've got some fantastic news for you – it's time to plan the ultimate staycation right here in our own backyard. No need to pack your bags or endure long flights; Fresno has much to offer for a rejuvenating and exciting staycation. Let's dive into five incredible ideas that will make your staycation an unforgettable experience, all while exploring the wonderful world of the Fresno Area!


Indulge in a Spa Day Fit for Royalty

You work hard, so why not treat yourself to a day of pure relaxation? Fresno is home to some exceptional spas that offer luxurious treatments to melt away your stress. Linda highly recommends Amenities Day Spa and Salon located at Fig Garden Village where you can indulge in rejuvenating massages, invigorating facials, and soothing body treatments. Trust us, a day at the spa is the perfect way to unwind and pamper yourself. And, it’s also a lot cheaper than an actual vacation!


Embrace the Beauty of Nature

Nature lovers, rejoice! Fresno boasts breathtaking natural beauty, and you don't need to venture far to experience it. Head to Yosemite and hike one of the many trails off Glacier Point Road for some truly stunning views; the Crocker Point trail is one of our favorites! If you're up for a leisurely day outdoors, Angel Falls at Bass Lake is an incredible way to spend an afternoon. You can stop by The Pines Resort for a great dinner at the end of the day with a beautiful view overlooking Bass Lake.


Rediscover Your City Through a Tourist's Eyes

Have you ever played tourist in your own city? Now's the time! If you haven't experienced The Shinzen Friendship Japanese Garden at Woodward Park, you’re missing out on a truly beautiful place and experience.  Also, the Fresno Chaffee Zoo has made some really nice updates over the past several years. It is not as you most likely remember it. Check it out and you’ll be in for a treat. Dive into Fresno's rich history and culture by visiting these must-see spots. It's amazing how much we can discover in our own backyard.


Campout Adventures: Indoors or Outdoors

Remember the thrill of camping as a kid? Recreate that magic right at home! Pitch a tent in your backyard and enjoy a night under the stars. If you have kids, they'll absolutely love this – it's a memory they'll cherish forever. Alternatively, bring the outdoors in by setting up a campsite in your living room. Trust me, the joy of indoor camping is something the whole family can enjoy.


Embark on a Journey of Learning with a New Hobby

Ever wanted to try something new? Now's the time to explore your interests. Sign up for a pottery painting class at Color Me Mine in Riverpark or take scuba diving lessons at California Scuba Center in Clovis so you’ll be prepared for your next tropical vacation. Learning a new hobby not only fuels your creativity but also allows you to connect with others who share your passion.
