Celebrate the Final Days of Summer with a Staycation
Summer is quickly coming to a close and for our family the lazy days of summer ended three weeks ago when my daughter went back to school. Down here is East Tennessee, they go back early and it has been an adjustment for all of us because we weren’t ready for summer to be over. Even though she is back in school during the week ,it doesn’t mean that we have thrown in the towel on enjoying summer. We still have the weekends and are celebrating the final days of summer with a staycation in our own area. Enjoying a staycation can be just as relaxing as a vacation but you don’t have to worry about travel time, booking a hotel, finding housesitters, and with the $49.88 TRULY Unlimited Talk, Text and Data◊ plan from Walmart Family Mobile, powered by T-Mobile, you can save money so you have the money to spend on adventures around town. (Disclaimer:All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to this page or your local Walmart for current pricing)
We celebrated our first staycation by heading to downtown Knoxville and visiting our favorite place, Market Square. There are so many places to shop and dine, plus the art in the area is super fun to discover. We actually discovered a hidden gem, that we never knew existed, when we stumbled across an alley full of painted murals. We don’t know how we missed them on our previous visits but enjoyed taking the time to explore the artist’s work.
Since every summer day is not complete without ice cream, we headed over to the local pharmacy and soda fountain to enjoy dessert before dinner. As a parent, I know that this is a no-no but since it is a staycation, anything goes.
Thanks to the unlimited data◊, we were able to check out menus at the local restaurants. We wanted to try something new so we made sure to check out reviews also. We may have had dessert on the mind because we selected a place to dine based on the macarons we could enjoy after we ate. We forgot about the second dessert once our entrees arrived because we were treated to a culinary delight. We made sure to leave a positive review before leaving so other culinary explorers would know this was the place to eat.
We didn’t want the staycation to end so we headed over to the local park to explore the new art exhibits and to relax. We don’t live close to our family so when I get pictures of my daughter, I like to share them immediately. With the Walmart Family Mobile, I am always connected so I was able to instantly share these adorable images.
When we couldn’t walk anymore, we headed on home to enjoy a movie thanks to the VUDU** movie rental credit. Each month when you renew your TRULY Unlimited plan you get a $7.00 movie credit. This means that every staycation can end with a family movie night making the fun last all night.
Your staycation does not have to be a one day event though because the TRULY Unlimited plan from Walmart Family Mobile makes staying connected easy. It is as simple as picking a phone, selecting a plan, and activating your phone. You are only limited by how long you take to make decisions. Plus with the clear monthly service plan prices you don’t have to worry about hidden fees. There are no contracts, activation fees, or late fees so you are free to use your money for your staycation. You can rest assured that you are getting Walmart’s best pricing in no contract wireless plans. Discover all the places you want to enjoy on your staycation thanks to the coverage on T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G LTE network.
We didn’t make it a one day staycation and have celebrated each week of school with a weekend staycation to drag out these final days of summer. In the past few weeks, we have discovered a tasty new pizza joint, found my daughter’s favorite book series in a local general store, discovered new places, enjoyed dinner on the patio, had a girl’s beauty shop day, ate to many sweet treats and watched the solar eclipse.
The summer days seem to go by faster the older I get but I am truly enjoying each and every minute of summer with my family. I will be enjoying a few more staycations before summer is over and can enjoy myself because my adventures are backed by the TRULY Unlimited plan from Walmart Family Mobile.
Make sure you check out the $49.88 TRULY Unlimited Talk, Text and Data◊ plan from Walmart Family Mobile, powered by T-Mobile, to take advantage of the great savings and make sure you have money to celebrate the final days of summer with a staycation in your town.
