February Vacation Ideas You'll Love

This February vacation try to focus on yourself – even if it’s just for one day or one experience. Think about something you’ve been wanting to do or something you used to enjoy that you wish you had time for now, and schedule it for February vacation. Here are a few ideas for you to consider.

Relax, read, repeat

Does your day look something like this? You wake up, get yourself and possibly kids ready for the day, drop off at school or daycare, work all day, pick-up, make dinner, eat dinner, clean up, take the dogs for a walk, possibly more work at home and finally bed. If the answer is yes, then you likely don’t have much time to dedicate to reading a book. This vacation week take advantage of the free time and pick up a copy of something you’ve been meaning to read. Not sure what to get? Check out USA Today’s Top 100 Best Sellers of 2018. Many bookstores offer an MTA discount, like Broadside Bookshop in Northampton, Brookline Booksmith in Brookline and Storybook Cove in Hanover. Take a look at the full list of bookstore discounts.

Relax for an hour (or more!)

There are so many benefits to massage other than just a little relaxation. Stress relief, reduced anxiety, pain management and better sleep are just a few of them. Take some time to yourself and book a massage at one of the many locations that offer an MTA member discount, including A Basic Knead Healing Therapies in Westborough, Body & Soul Massage in Salem and Restoration Massage in Assonet.
