If the St. George Island weather traps you indoors, there are plenty of ways to have fun in your vacation rental. Discover a few from Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island.
Even if you plan your beach vacation for the dry season, there’s always a chance for the weather to become a bit rainy on Florida’s Forgotten Coast and St. George Island. A sudden storm doesn’t have to ruin your beach vacation, though. If you get rained out, Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island offers a few tips to keep having fun inside your rental despite the rainy weather.
Have a Spa Day
There’s nothing more relaxing than a day at the spa. Of course, spas can also be very expensive, especially if you’re treating your whole family. Not everyone wants to devote a large chunk of their vacation budget to a rainy-day backup plan. Instead of dropping cash on a professional spa treatment, you can whip up an inexpensive version in your vacation rental. Cucumbers, lemons, and coconut oil are readily available at most grocery stores. You can even look up some DIY face masks or foot rubs and treat yourself to the full spa day experience without ever leaving your rental.
Keep It Cozy and Casual
If a spa day isn’t your style, there are other ways to relax without a beach. Put on your pajamas, pile up all the pillows your vacation rental can offer, and enjoy a rainy-day activity such as:
- View a family favorite movie.
- Read a book from a local bookstore.
- Sip tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, or crack open a cold beer.
- Watch the rain through your beach-view windows.
Play Some Games
Add some excitement to your rainy day with a little competition. Many vacation rentals come equipped with a few classic board games, decks of cards, or puzzles for just this purpose. You can even set small prizes for the winners! There are also plenty of mobile apps for group games, and Pictionary and Charades don’t require anything more than a pencil and some paper.
Cook Up Something Delicious
Spend your rainy days cooking. Vacation rentals don’t only have games, but most of them also have a fully equipped kitchen with all the tools you’ll need to whip up something tasty. Just take a quick trip to the grocery store for ingredients, and you’re set to go. What you make is only limited by your imagination. Try out a new recipe, bake a favorite dessert, and get the kids involved. You’ll have fun, stay dry, and create a delicious meal to share.
Your vacation might not be over yet, but rainy downtime is a great opportunity to get a head start on saving the memories you’ve made so far. Take advantage of a quiet moment to pull out your camera, upload some pictures, and even order a few prints to get started on a scrapbook. Or, if your kids have filled their pockets with shells, you can string them up into necklaces or gather them into display jars.
