So while we may be locals we still like to break off and enjoy our own little staycation. Hey, we live where the rest of the world vacations so why not take advantage.
That being said, we don’t hit the “fancy” places and sometimes we use Air B&B. Most of the time we will hit a hotel though so we can enjoy the pool, views, and quick bar access. They are pretty close in price so no big deal.
Here are our 6 “Go To’s”
