Getting a break from work and your daily routine doesn't have to involve an expensive trip to some exotic location. A "staycation" -- a short vacation close to home, or even right in your hometown -- is a way to enjoy some fun while not breaking the bank. Use your Sun sign as a guide to plan time off that's nearby, affordable and ideal for you!

Aries
The perfect Aries staycation is high-energy, fast-paced and exciting. The Ram should unwind by taking a rock-climbing trip, visiting a local racetrack or getting tickets to a major sporting event.

Taurus
Earthy Taurus will appreciate a trip that allows them to commune with nature and enjoy the sensual pleasures of life in a leisurely way. Camping, a garden tour or a day spent touring local wineries will surely make this easygoing sign happy.

Gemini
A great staycation for this curious and communicative sign involves plenty of opportunities to acquire new information. Think creatively: A tour of a famous writer's home will appeal to Gemini's mercurial mind.

Cancer
Cancer, the sign that rules the stomach, will probably enjoy any staycation centered around food, so consider exploring inexpensive restaurants and other culinary attractions in your immediate area. The more comfortable Cancer is, the better, so be sure to pick a location that seems relatively safe and familiar.

Leo
Leo loves to play, so an ideal staycation for them will include plenty of childlike fun. Book a paint-ball excursion, or pull together a game of volleyball at the park. This sign also appreciates luxury, so for a completely different Leo experience, they should look for special deals at high-end hotels close to home.

Nature-loving Virgo always wants to be of service, so this sign will appreciate a staycation that allows them to combine their passion with pleasure. A volunteer cleanup project at a local park or an environmental service trip is sure to appeal to Virgo's busy-bee nature.

Libra
Since this beauty-loving sign appreciates both art and shopping, try a staycation that involves a little of both by scoping out local galleries and art museums. A weekend getaway to a nearby art hotspot -- or perhaps tickets to a fashion show -- would also appeal to this stylish sign.

Scorpio
As the zodiac's most sexual sign, Scorpio would probably enjoy a staycation that involves plenty of time in bed with a willing partner. Single Scorps, meanwhile, will prefer time alone to delve deeply into their own psyche, so a meditation retreat may be the perfect easy holiday for them.

Sagittarius
Adventure-loving Sagittarius will appreciate any staycation that brings excitement and new experiences. This Fire sign also loves to learn, so for maximum enjoyment, try something that's sure to involve their active brains!

Capricorn
As the traditionalist of the zodiac, Capricorn loves to stick with the tried-and-true, so their perfect staycation will feature a trip to a familiar place. They should take a tour of local historical sites to appeal to their deep connection to the past.

Aquarius
Quirky and offbeat, community-loving Aquarius will appreciate a staycation that includes a group of friends. A music festival or visit to a local gathering will be ideal for this extra-social sign.

Pisces
Water-loving Pisces will enjoy nothing more than a staycation at a beach, near a river or by a lake. Add art supplies and music to the mix, and the Fish will be blissfully content!
