Why You Should Splurge on Experiences, Not Things While on Vacation

Vacation Tips Vacation is a time to relax, get away from it all and make new memories. The best way to do that? Have new, unforgettable experiences. We think it’s worth the money!

Here’s why you should spend money on experiences while on vacation:

Memories last forever

No matter how many souvenirs you buy, they lose their appeal over time. That t-shirt gets stuffed in the back of your closet. You don’t even notice the magnet on your fridge after a few weeks. But the memory of that jet ski ride or boat tour? It lives on in your memory indefinitely. Researchers have found that we get used to the physical things we own, and their appeal lessens over time. However, we continue to feel pleasure every time we remember a fun experience.

Experiences connect us to others

Chances are, you’ll enjoy your jet ski ride or restaurant meal with a friend or loved one. The experience will bring you closer together and strengthen your bond. Every time you talk about the fun time you had, the bond is renewed!

You’ll never be the same… in a good way!

Having new experiences makes you feel confident, and helps you learn new things about yourself. You may have been nervous to get on a jet ski, but after you master the technique you’ll feel amazing.

There’s no better place to make memories than beautiful Madeira Beach, Florida. Check out Woody’s Watersports for experiences you’ll never forget.
