Best Staycation Destinations: This Week's Readers' Choice

Where in town do you go to have some fun on your days off?

For many of us, going on vacation doesn't necessarily mean taking a trip.

Going on vacation can simply mean chillin' at home -- going out to eat, doing some fun things in town and maybe getting a few household chores done.

We're so glad someone invented a name for this kind of non-travelin' vacation: The Staycation.

This week's Readers' Choice focuses on Best Staycation Destinations. Beginning today -- Monday, May 7 -- and through 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, we'll be asking for your recommendations for places to go in Westlake while on a staycation.

Where to go on a staycation? A local putt-putt course ... the historical society ... a bowling alley ... the spa ... the video arcade. These are places where you can relax and have a little fun.

Give us your recommendation in the comments section below. With your help, we'll put together a list of nominees. Then look for our poll on Thursday, May 10 and vote! We'll select a winner at 5 p.m. Friday, May 11 and announce it in a story on Saturday, May 12.

In judging, we'll consider comments, poll votes and reviews in our complete directory of local businesses. Be sure to check out our contest rules in the PDF at right.

Hands down. The Clague Memorial Park. A wonderful place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Most may not be aware, but The Clague House Museum and Clague Playhouse (Clague Barn) are part of the Clague Park. Many years ago, the park was given as a gift to the community by the remaining Clague children as a place for people and families to recreate. The Clague Family Pond which was dug by Mr. Walter Clague, is a wonderful destination within the park. The Clague House Museum built in 1876 also has the distinction of being on the National Registry of Historic Places. The Clague Park is home to the annual Fourth of July Fireworks show as well. Hundreds of children take part in little league baseball and softball and play on fields located in the park.

Huntington Playhouse makes a great "Staycation Destination". Go out for dinner and then enjoy the arts by attending a play/musical at your local community theatre. You will not only enjoy your night out, but you will be supporting your friends and family!
