Backyard Staycation Ideas for Summer

A backyard staycation provides the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, and spend some quality time with your family. It is convenient and affordable as well. Tip: Add your backyard staycation to your calendar, with a start and end date, much like you would if traveling.

Let the backyard staycation begin with these ideas:

Cook Outside

Fire up the grill and let the aroma of your Pinterest inspired foil packets fill the air. Aside from backyard grills, outdoor kitchens, complete with electrical and plumbing hookups can be constructed. Built-in pizza ovens and rotisseries are always crowd pleasers. Bonus: Cooking outside won’t heat up your house.

Make a Splash

A swimming pool can transform your backyard into something truly exclusive. It also provides a refreshing escape from the hot Arizona sun. Swimming pools can be custom-built affordably with low financing options in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit any backyard. Maximize your family’s fun with slides, grottos, and sun decks.

Outdoor Movie Night

Throw some oversized cushions down, pop the popcorn, and enjoy movies in your own backyard. For the screen, you can attach a fitted sheet to a wall or fence, or make your own using a oversized art canvas. You’ll also need a projector. String some outdoor lights for added ambiance.

Here are some summer themed movies:

  • The Great Outdoors (1988)
  • The Sandlot (1993)
  • The Parent Trap (1998)
  • Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005)
  • Dolphin Tale (2011)

Sleep Under the Stars

There are no words to describe how incredible it is to sleep under the stars and/or moon. You must experience it yourself. For comfort, lay some lightweight sleeping bags on the ground, or if you’re more comfortable, pitch a tent but leave the top cover off for visibility. You can also use an inflatable air mattress.
