Portland Makes the List of Top 10 Best Places for a Staycation!

While plenty of people will be heading out on vacation this summer, not everyone can afford to go away. But just because you don’t have the cash to leave your city, it doesn’t mean you have to be stuck at home bored all summer.

Most people don’t even realize there’s plenty to do and see in their own city, and a staycation may be just the thing to help you enjoy your summer. Of course, some cities have way more to offer when it comes to staycations, and a new report reveals which ones are best.
