Copy-#N12: Staycations

Posted: Updated:

A new study suggests many Americans won't be going away this summer.

According to Bankrate, 49 percent of Americans do not plan on going away this year. Some of those people say they just can't afford to.

Here are some fun, cheap and accessible ideas for a staycation:

Head to Rockaway Beach on Tuesdays for sunset yoga.

Go to the Bronx Zoo on Wednesdays for free general admission.

Every Thursday night in July and August, catch a free movie under the stars at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Or head to Manhattan for Broadway in Bryant Park.

On Saturdays, you can go kayaking for free on Governors Island.
