I just read an article (Landis, 1905) entitled “A Vacation Trip at Home.” I mention it here not so much for its content, but for its date–July 1905.
I’m sharing it to highlight the American Periodical Series Online database, where I found the article. Obviously people from history or American Studies would find this resource useful. Anyone researching a social or cultural topic might find it interesting. One can see how things like the staycation have (or haven’t) changed.
Try it out for yourselves. In the meantime I wish all of you safe and pleasant vacations, whether at home or away.
