DINE ON SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Travel is all about new experiences. If there is a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try, now is the time. Or you can call up your favorite restaurant and order a menu item you’ve never had. If you’re feeling bold, ask for whatever the chef’s favorite dish is. In Eugene, we are fortunate to live in a place rich in culinary delights. Savor them as if you are visiting for the first time.
TAKE A SELFIE
What says “vacation” more than too many photos? Our community has been very intentional about creating a city full of public art. The many murals make for a perfect selfie backdrop.
WEAR YOUR VACATION HAT
...or your travel shoes, or your adventure fanny pack. Wearing your travel attire will put you into the mindset to explore your home through the eyes of someone discovering it for the first time.
TAKE A DRIVE
You don’t have to go far from home to see something new. Just grab a map and see what’s down that road you’ve never had the time to take before. You might discover something magical. Remember to be prepared with snacks and a full tank of gas before leaving on your journey.
CAMP IN THE BACKYARD
If you miss the kind of travel where you sleep under the stars, you can still do that in your backyard. If you don’t have access to outdoor space, there’s still magic in a good blanket fort with string lights and nature sounds on YouTube... and s’mores.
BOOK A NIGHT AT A LOCAL HOTEL
The hospitality community has been finding creative solutions for keeping visitors and staff safe without compromising on your favorite luxuries. For those at home with others, the quiet and solitude of a night’s stay at a local hotel can be just the mental vacation you need during these times.
