Memorial Day weekend usually means the unofficial start of summer, which in most years meant the beginning of vacation season. Of course, plenty of folks won’t be going anywhere this summer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things to do in their own city.

A staycation may be just the thing to help Americans enjoy their summer.  Of course, some cities have way more to offer when it comes to staycations, and a new report reveals which ones are best. WalletHub just came out with their list of the Best Places for a Staycation. They looked at 180 cities based on 15 key factors for a fun-filled, but wallet-friendly vacation. Those factors include parks per capita, hiking and running trails per capita, strictness of shelter-in-place orders and more.

If you have family in these areas maybe you can quarantine with them. I’d probably drive though!
