Why Wylie: The Best Spring Break Staycation Ideas for Your Family

Can’t decide what to do with the family over spring break this year? Well, we have just the thing for you and it’s a little thing called staycationing. A staycation with the family is the perfect time for everyone to pick activities they enjoy, spend time together, and create new traditions. This list of ideas will help everyone in your family be excited to “vacation” in your Wylie, TX home!




With the weather starting to warm up in Wylie around spring break, camping in your backyard is the ultimate staycation idea for the family. Set up tents, sleeping bags and don’t forget the marshmallows to make s’mores! Then download The Night Sky app for the whole family to enjoy the sights of stars, planets and even satellites from the comfort of your home.

Paintball or Laser Tag

One of the best parts about living in Wylie is that it is near many attractions. Take the family out for a game of paintball or laser tag! You might even want to invite other families along to have the ultimate family battle.

Family Barbecue

Whether you invite the neighbors or just want to hangout with the family, a spring break barbecue is a must when staycationing. Throw some of your tasty favorites on the grill while enjoying time together outside. If it’s warm enough, just think how fun it would be to set up a slip & slide in the backyard! Nothing screams fun like tasty barbecue and a slip & slide!

Treasure Hunt

Now, we’re not talking about just any treasure hunt here. Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunt game! By using GPS-enabled devices, participants navigate their way in an attempt to find the geocache, a container, hidden at that location.

Go Golfing

Golfing is a fun activity everyone can do together. Try taking the family to Topgolf this spring break. It’s perfect for all ages – even the kiddos! Plus Topgolf has lots of activities other than golf to keep the whole family entertained such as pool tables, video games, giant jenga and much more!
