Don’t have the time or money to to skip town for spring break this year? Do what my friends and I did: Stay home! Pretend you’re a tourist in your own town! What follows are some of the best staycation ideas we came up with. First up: Buy some hula-hoops from the dollar store, take them to the park, and have a hula contest! (Natalia C.

Go to the museum and take in some culture.
1 pizza + 1 empty parking lot = instant fine dining.
Find the highest point in your town and check out the view—especially if it’s a place you normally don’t visit because it’s “for tourists.”
Make a picnic of nachos, popsicles, and iced tea on the sidewalk.
Invite a friend to help you walk your dog as the sun starts to set.
Go to the arcade!
Lie on the grass with your best pals and reminisce about the day you just had.
Pop some popcorn and watch Mean Girls for the millionth time.
