Staycation with Moosehead Outdoor Adventures

Moosehead-pinnacle-pursuitA Maine adventure staycation is a fun way to pack in lots of outdoor adventures close to home.  This article will touch on a staycation with Moosehead Outdoor Adventures in mind while you enjoy Maine.  A mere two hours from Maine’s rocky coast and top 10 visited national parks (Acadia National Park) is the largest lake in the state, Moosehead Lake.  That’s where you’ll find us!  Northeast Whitewater is at the heart of moose country, whitewater rivers, variety of hiking opportunities and welcoming lake town charm.  You need a vacation, but plan to not travel far, look no further than a staycation with Moosehead Outdoor Adventures.

What is a staycation anyway?

A staycation gives you the chance to become a tourist in your own community and state. Visit areas nearby to your home to gain a new appreciation for where you live and why visitors flock there.

A staycation, or holistay, is a period in which an individual or family stays home and participates in leisure activities within driving distance of their home and does not require overnight accommodations. Alternatively, and commonly in UK usage, it is a holiday spent in one’s home country rather than abroad.

What makes a staycation great?

Vacations close to home can be less stressful, more affordable and remind you why you live in the Northeast to begin with.  Believe it or not, you can have a positively fun time exploring your neck of the woods without breaking the bank. The best thing about a staycation is that the options are wide open. Sticking around your state can be rejuvenating without the cost and hassle of planning a big getaway.
