I could use a staycation as I’m sure we all could. I could use a vacation too, but the same benefits without the travel time. That’s several more hours of fun and relaxation ready to be had. And I’m here for it. And if you live in South Carolina then you are in luck. Travel publication Travel Lens recently ranked the best US cities to do just that. And it was a South Carolina city that topped the list of best places for a staycation. And another SC city was also named in the top 10.
To create this list they analyzed the most popular tourist destinations in The US to find the safest, most affordable, and best overall locations for a staycation. Locations were ranked on 6 metrics including the average cost of accommodations, the number of restaurants and attractions, weather, and crime. Then based on all this information they were given a “Staycation score”. This allowed them to rank some of the most popular tourist destinations in the US, but instead of for tourists, for locals. Or almost locals. Live in one of these cities in South Carolina it’s time to pack your bags and make reservations for that much-needed staycation.
