Top 10 cities for staycations

As Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz" famously opined, “There’s no place like home.” That’s especially true if you live in one of the following 10 cities. Each offers such a cornucopia of experiences and activities that you don’t need to leave home to have a great vacation. If you call another town home, take your cue from these suggestions and explore your area with fresh eyes.

Very poorly written article, says nothing about nothing.  You have to page thru the entire 11 pages to find the city you want.  Should list the 11 cities up front.  As a journalism major, I don't like to be forced to read an entire article to get the information I want.  Get a clue!

These 10 staycation suggestions are a little silly. Of course the big cities have things to do. What are the good staycation places that aren't "no brainers?"

 

And what are the comments about meeting people?
