For many people, holidays are just like any other day. Work schedules and daily responsibilities still demand a lot of attention, and when you have some free time during a holiday, you may choose to just relax and do nothing.

Doing nothing is also a way to relax, but why not try something different this Easter? If you have the opportunity to have some fun, make the most of it.

And the good news is that there are plenty of ways to celebrate without doing anything extravagant. Here are six staycation ideas to explore this holiday season:

Go on a local safari

You don't have to book an expensive weekend in the Masai Mara to see some wildlife. There are several parks in different counties and it will only cost you a few shillings, which is great if you're on a budget.

This is a wonderful family-friendly activity that you can even enjoy with your children. They'll love seeing some interesting animals they've never seen before in real life.

Go on a road trip

Going on a road trip is still a fun activity that people like to do now and then. It gives you a chance to bond over some interesting stories and it's also a way to make new memories with your loved ones.

You can simply take a short ride around your area to catch up, or decide to take a longer trip to a nearby county and have lunch on the way.

You can still have a great day out without having to worry about accommodation and other costs associated with longer trips.

Go swimming

Sometimes growing up doesn't leave us much time to enjoy life. Your definition of fun might be the same old routine of sitting at home watching TV and nothing else.

This Easter, try going swimming with your family or friends. Even if you're not a fan, you can still have a good time by the pool.

Visit a local museum

This is another activity you might like to do this holiday weekend. It's probably been years since you've been to a museum, so why not visit one and see what you've been missing?

If you've got some free time, pick one you like and have fun learning about our country's rich history.

Go camping

Although it's great to have the luxury experience of a hotel, it's still a good idea to try something different like camping.

It's great to spend time together under the stars at night and explore new activities like hiking and outdoor cooking.

Book an Airbnb

Booking an Airbnb is another fun way to enjoy your Easter weekend with your mates. It's a lot cheaper than booking a hotel and you get to decide what you want to cook, how big the house is, what's included and so on.

If you're planning a weekend away, you can choose to book a local place or stay in one while you travel for the weekend.
