Buy a Hot Tub or Take a Vacation

Hmmm. This is food for thought. Have you ever wondered if you should buy a hot tub or take a vacation? Read along as we present the case!

The family vacation is something many families plan and save for all year long. In fact, it’s the goal of many families to take a vacation each year.

Spending time together is something we all value. In fact, it affects our happiness. Friends, family, and community top the list for major happiness factors.

We know that vacations make us happy, and if you’ve ever soaked in a hot tub, you know that makes you happy, too.

Vacations bring new experiences and family togetherness.

Yet, family vacations are fleeting, and young children often forget them. And hot tubs are around for many, many years. They help build memories for a last time.

So, today, we ask the question, “Should I buy a hot tub or take a family vacation?”

Let’s look at hot tubs, first.

Hot Tubs and Happiness

Our hot tub owners tell us their hot tubs are the place they enjoy relaxing. They also tell us that they strengthen their relationships with not only their spouses, but their children, while soaking in a hot tub.

A spa is a great place for family togetherness and a perfect spot for engaging conversation. Without electronics such as smartphones and the televisions, hot tubs have no distractions, so there’s plenty of time for talking.

Hot tubs are perfect for together time and outdoor enjoyment. They’re the perfect spot to build relationships and a lifetime of memories.

Families can have movie nights in their hot tubs, or they can simply sit together and listen to music. The options are endless for days and nights of family fun.

Vacation Perks

Next, let’s look at some typical vacation perks – the ones most families are looking for:

  • Time to relax
  • Distraction-free time to reconnect with friends and family
  • Social time
  • Stress relief
  • A time for reflection
  • Outdoor enjoyment

Finally, vacations can bring about all of these perks, but it’s only for a short time. A hot tub, on the other hand, can provide these perks year-round.
