10 Great Summer Stay-cations

Bring Exotic Locales Home

Soaring airfares and language barriers make international travel an exhausting and expensive process. Instead of setting off for foreign lands, bring these exotic locales home with a stay-cation themed party.

Dying to see Egypt, but not ready to splurge? Throw an Egyptian-themed party with creative decorations, costumes and authentic cuisine. Instead of jetting off to the islands, plan your own luau complete with Hawaiian shirts, music and hula dancing. Celebrate the cuisine and culture of Rome, Paris and other international cities, or watch movies set in your chosen locale. Study the language and history, and start planning for a time when you can afford to take your dream trip to these exotic destinations.
