A break from every day life doesn’t have to mean an expensive vacation to a faraway land—unless you want it to! Sometimes a staycation is all you need to give you that same refreshed feeling, a chance to recharge your batteries while not having to stray far from home. The luckiest of you may even live in one of our nine best U.S. cities to staycation near, including such cities as Chicago, Seattle, and San Francisco.
