Summer travel season is in full swing once again. However, that also means more crowds and more headaches when it comes to travel. Maybe you didn't get your summer vacation booked before prices increased and vacancies filled up. Or maybe you are hoping that the crowds will thin out in the fall. Either way, you may need a vacation now more than ever.

Vacations provide a ton of benefits and are a great way to relax and take a break from your everyday stressors. But sometimes, you can't swing a whole vacation. The good news is that you can still enjoy a little getaway without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Here are some fun ways to "get away" without actually getting away:

  • Create a themed cocktail or drink based on the place you're dreaming of. Whip up a fancy French cocktail and pretend you're sitting on a terrace in Paris, or order a local microbrew from a US destination that you've always wanted to go to.

  • You can also create a themed dinner night and take a culinary adventure around the world. Bonus points if you design a real menu.

  • Visit a museum (virtually). The Google Arts and Culture Project makes it possible to visit the Tate, Reina Sofia, and Acropolis Museum all from the comfort of your own home.

Whether you want to visit a national park, learn a new language, or try a new recipe, there are countless ways to explore the world from your living room.
