MAN ON THE STREET: Stay-cations

by: Pam Eubanks Senior Editor

These days, many families are opting to vacation locally. The East County Observer caught up with some members at the Lakewood Ranch YMCA to see what their favorite “stay-cation” is and why.

What is your favorite stay-cation and why?

Tony Lauro
I’d go to Siesta Key. I like the beach and the night life.

Karen Lundholm
Here. I moved here from New Jersey. You can’t beat the beaches. But aside from the beaches, I’d go to a theme park or kayaking.

Nora Roberts
I like to stay home. That’s what I like to do. If I have extra time, I like to bake, but my greatest joy is taking care of my grandchildren.

Bill Townson
I’d like to go somewhere peaceful and serene where I can play golf and read.

I’d go golfing at different golf courses and eat at different restaurants. That way get to experience some of the restaurants I wouldn’t normally frequent, and I enjoy my favorite sport.

Howard Way
I’d spend time at Marina Jack or St. Armands Circle. There’s a variety of things to do.
