Should I stay or should I go?

“Staycation” became a big buzzword in 2008 as the rocky financial situation in the country and record high gas prices caused families to put elaborate travel plans on hold or adapt to stringing together day trip activities or short getaways.

If extensive travel isn’t in the cards for your spring break, here’s a suggested itinerary for a fun-filled week of day trips in and around the Region.
