A Vacation Destination in Your Own Backyard

Do you love to travel? Looking for a vacation destination?

We sure do. Traveling lets us relax, take a break from the stress and overly committed daily life. And, it lets us try something new. Yet, for many of us, jetting off to an exotic destination or even taking a weekend road trip isn’t possible or during the pandemic, seems a little too adventurous.

With busy schedules, roadblocks to travel often happens. So, what can you do to have a bit of a vacation at home? What about every day?

In this article, we look at how you can enjoy a vacation destination in your own backyard just as much (if not more) as leaving town.

Many people enjoy traveling, and here are some of the most common reasons why:

  • Get refreshed and revitalized
  • Dedicated time to spend with your partner and kids
  • Socialize with friends and family
  • Time to reflect on short and long-term goals
  • Appreciate nature and the surroundings
  • Prioritizing pleasure over work

Did you know you have can enjoy all of these right at home in your vacation destination spot? With a hot tub at home, wellness, happiness, and connection are as close as your own backyard.

Not quite convinced? This chart from Hot Spring Spas compares the overall wellness benefits of a hot tub versus a vacation.



Enjoyment Frequency

Many Hot Spring customers make “spa time” part of their daily routine. Even when used daily, a high-quality hot tub can last 15 to 20 years or longer with proper maintenance. One to two-week duration once yearly. Memories can last a lifetime, although the experience itself is short.


Daily or at least weekly opportunities for revitalizing massage, meditation, connection and socialization with family, friends and neighbors leads to an increased sense of well being. Awesome for the one- to two-week period, but over quickly.

Socialization/ Community

Consistent opportunity to invite family, friends and neighbors to connect in a pleasant, natural setting. Family and friends can join up on vacation. Great, but short-lived, fun. Out-of-pocket costs for all participants. Logistics can be a hassle for the organizer.

Connection to
Loved Ones

It’s tough to bring a smartphone, tablet or television into the tub. The burble of the bubbles fills in silences, giving soakers opportunities to discuss matters at their leisure. Good opportunity to connect in stimulating new settings if friends and family members take out the headphones, put down the phones and stop to enjoy the experience.

Dedicated Relaxation

A hot tub can serve as your personal reset button, helping you melt away mental and physical tension. And since it’s in your own back yard, you can enjoy revitalization every day! Opportunities to recharge, but also pressure to take advantage of everything the location has to offer; landmarks, museums, hikes, shows, athletic adventures, restaurants and more.

Meditation / Reflection time

There is nothing like warm water and jets to help you access the subconscious and reflect on your emotional and physical wellness. A practice of daily meditation is proven to make you happier over your lifetime. Vacation brings a clear-eyed perspective back home. It also provides the necessary distance to re-evaluate goals and determine what matters. The problem is that resolutions discovered while away can be lost in frenetic home life.

Time in Nature

Regular time in your outdoor hot tub helps you tune into the beauty of nature from your own backyard. This awareness helps you feel part of a greater world, a notion that eases stress and improves happiness. Visiting dramatic places like Yosemite or Big Sur can be life changing.

The Vacation Destination

We think a hot tub wins hands down when it comes to a daily experience that makes us happier, more full of life, feel better, and connect with ourselves, our family, and friends. Hot tubbing is a popular backyard activity for people of all ages, families, empty nesters, athletes
– just about anyone!
