There's absolutely no reason why you can't do everything you would do while on an exotic vacation in your own backyard.
Be a tourist
We often neglect some of our towns' best attractions because the world thinks they're just "for tourists". Many museums and galleries offer free entry for ratepayers.
Or if you possess an Entertainment Book, you may get discounts on sets from brewery tours to zoos.
Have a fancy dinner
Always wondered what that posh restaurant around the waterfront was like? Well, staycations aren't for fish and chips in your house. Dress up with the occasion, nor even think about skipping dessert.
Learn something new
Sign up to get a course near you. The Auckland Seafood School with the Fish Market provides the perfect cooking classes for barbecue season.
Head to your day spa for the facial and massage. Trust us, it'll still feel as well as if you were residing in an island resort.
Go see a show
You aren't required to go all the way to Broadway to view a world-class performance.
