It’s almost time to turn on staycation mode, so we’ve picked the best deals you can grab with the family for the upcoming September holidays.

We’ve included staycations that cater to all families, from those who prefer filling their itinerary with family activities to parents who need some luxurious pampering while the kids are preoccupied.

  1. If your family is more indoorsy, then a museum-themed staycation would be just the thing to feel away from home without compromising comfort. With the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Overnight in the Museum Package, guests can experience the world’s only augmented reality hotel art tour. Visitors can interact virtually with renowned art pieces.
