All I ever wanted
Had to get away
Remember those lyrics from that Go-Go’s song?
Who doesn’t dream of their next vacation? Except when you can’t get away because of life’s many realities.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona where the hot summers drive tourists away and create a staycation playground for us locals. We get access to top-tier resorts for a fraction of the high-season rates, creating the biggest stay-cation opportunity of the year. Who cares about the triple-digit temps when I can float down man-made lazy rivers, get body wraps and massages on the cheap, and chill out in a deluxe hotel room with the air conditioner cranked down to 68 degrees…just five miles from my house.
While staycationing in my hometown, I still have to keep in mind that my identity is at risk because that’s the world we live in today. The potential of identity theft happening to you on a staycation is about the same as a real vacation, and there are a few things you should do to protect yourself.
