Who said spring break had to involve flights, long car rides, or complicated travel plans? If you ask us, a stay-cation is just as relaxing and rejuvenating as a week spent on the beach—and it’s less expensive, too!
If you’re staying in town for spring break this year, Suburban Square has everything you need to make your stay-cation the breath of fresh air you deserve.
Cozy up on the couch
Nothing says “stay-cation” like living in a cloud of coziness all week! Whether you plan to binge-watch everything in your Netflix queue or catch up on your reading list, you can head to west elm to pick out everything from a thick, fluffy blanket to a picture-perfect mug for your favorite tea.
A lazy day on the couch wouldn’t be complete without an equally as cozy outfit! Lucky for you, you can find sweats, sweaters, and fantastically fuzzy socks for the whole family at Gap. There’s nothing like a set of threads that can take you from bed to the couch and back again!
Plan the perfect menu
Staying in town for spring break doesn’t mean you can’t eat like you’re on vacation! Stop by the Ardmore Farmers Market at Suburban Square to stock your fridge with some of your favorite eats to fuel your week of relaxation.
Luke from Sushi Sei Express recommends the sushi party tray—perfect for an impromptu movie night with your fellow stay-cationing buds. If you want to put your cooking skills to the test while you have extra time on your hands, Jimmy from Aziatisch suggests browsing their selection of Japanese organic noodles. They cook in just four minutes and are a perfect addition to a soup or salad.
Indulge in some self-care
Having extra time on your hands during spring break is the perfect reason to treat yourself to that face mask or beauty product you’ve been dying to try. Shake up your hair care routine by heading to Blue Mercury to try the Klorane Aquatic Mint Collection, which includes Detox Shampoo, Protective Conditioner, and Purifying Mist. Meghan, the store’s manager, says that the products detoxify, purify and protect your hair and scalp against the damaging effects of pollution. We feel relaxed just thinking about it!
If you find yourself missing the beach during your stay-cation, don’t worry: Sephora has you covered. Store manager Desiree recommends Atelier Cologne‘s new Pacific Lime Cologne Absolue for a perfect splash of all things tropical that makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of your favorite beachy destination.
Try a new workout regimen
Take a break from your (much-deserved) couch time to get your blood pumping at Life Time Athletics. Senior General Manager Miklos suggests trying an “active metabolic assessment” to determine custom heart rate zones to help you be as efficient and effective as possible while exercising. What better time to spend a little extra time figuring out your ideal fitness routine than spring break?
There’s nothing like a good workout to help you feel fresh, rejuvenated, and ready to take on whatever awaits you after your break. Whether you’re stopping by Suburban Square for a bite to eat or a self-care essential, we’re excited to be a part of your epic stay-cation!
