Traveling for work can bring about feelings of isolation and a break in your normal routine. At times you may find yourself being miles from home during the holidays or, your family may not be able to join you in your current business assignment. Additionally, living out of a suitcase can be draining and frustrating.
Instead of entertaining yourself with mindless television shows, why not enjoy your time in your new short-term home away from home? Corporate Housing Experts’ communities are situated conveniently near many city attractions, giving you perfect opportunities to get out and explore.
The next time you book your next business trip through corporate housing companies, use these simple ideas to make the most of your time away from home.
4 Simple Ideas for an Enjoyable Stay during Business Trips
- Put on Your Tourist Hat: Being in a new city brings new opportunities to explore and make fun memories. Grab your sunglasses, sunscreen, and sense of adventure. Head out the door of your extended stay home and into a whole new world of varying cultures, museums, water parks, or new cuisine. To get started, look up information available at www.visitmississippi.org.
- Check Out the Local Hot Spots: As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” Not every attraction needs to be in a tourist guidebook. When you are at a restaurant, ask your server where the locals go. You can even check out sites like Groupon to see what is available near you. If you are willing to do a little research and asking around, you can find those hidden gems that are local favorites.
- Cook Your Favorite Meal: Sometimes staying in and cooking for yourself is just what you need. A benefit of your rental apartment is a full, personal kitchen to whip up your favorite recipes. Cook to your heart’s content, and when you are done, pop all the dishes into the dishwasher, making clean up easy after you enjoy your meal!
- Utilize Your Community’s Amenities: Many of our communities have amenities such as pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, and tanning beds. Why not start your morning with a dip in the pool? Maybe you can invite co-workers for a match on the courts? If your apartment building has a fitness center, you do not have to miss out on your daily workout routine.
Traveling on business does not have to be boring, nor does it mean staying cooped up in your apartment. Whether you are staying for 30, 60, or 90 days, take advantage of your new environment. Get out and take in the culture, cook up your favorite meal, or keep up with your health routine. Our housing experts can assist you in making your stay the best yet.
