Summer is the perfect time to hit the open road! School’s out, the weather’s balmy, and the possibilities are endless.

How to Have a Fabulous Staycation

Summer is well underway and if you haven’t made your travel plans yet, or if going away for a vacation isn’t in the budget, there is still plenty of time to plan a fabulous staycation. According to Google data, searches for “staycations” peak every year during July.   There never used to be a word called “staycation,” but it has become a familiar term in all our vocabularies. The urban dictionary defines it as a vacation spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions. This summer, you can plan a “staycation” and unwind within (or just outside) your own four walls.

Independence Day Savings at New Balance

Stars and stripes, hotdogs and burgers, sparklers and fireworks. These are just a few of the 4th of July staples that define this summer holiday. It’s a day for parades and picnics and pick-up soccer games. It’s a day we all spend the majority of outside on our feet. There are a few memorable 4th of Julys when I forgot that and came home burnt and blistered. Comfortable shoes and sunscreen are now my first two grabs of the day!   This year I’m opting for SPF70 and the New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz running shoes. They’ve got a stretch heel and are super light weight and breathable.
