In this issue, we have a feature about “staycations” that will have you feeling rested and relaxed. Who said you have to go far away to enjoy yourself? Our feature focuses on greater northeastern Ohio. Right here in Stark County are the beautiful Gervasi Villas. With exquisite rooms, spa services and golf packages, this place is ideal for a getaway. For those of you hoping to venture a little farther, our stories on short trips to Amish Country and Cleveland will be right up your alley. Complete with interesting attractions, appealing restaurants and entertaining activities, this feature is a must-read.

For the true travelers, we have tips on how to score an awesome vacation for less than the average cost. Jess Bennett tells of her four-city visit to Japan and her cruise to Spain and Portugal and how she was able to navigate both trips easily. With the help of apps, websites and a travel agent, she was able to get the best value of both ventures.

Until next month,
