10 Rainy Holiday Ideas On a Budget

It's almost holiday season - hooray! One consideration is that summer isn't what it used to be: with some unusual climate activity over the past few years, you could find yourself on your break but stuck indoors with some unseasonal rain. With a bit of imagination, though, you don't have to write off your holiday when it's raining, there's a whole lot you can do to keep the entertainment coming. Join Caxino as we explore some budget-friendly activities to enjoy on a rainy day, no matter where you are.

Bring the world to your doorstep

You can explore the world without even leaving home! Take some of the cash you might have spent on expensive restaurants and create your own themed food party. You can invite a couple of friends around for a night of exotic cuisine (why not dress up, too?). To get you started: How about a beach party with funky cocktails or mocktails and huge fruit and snack platters. Wear your loudest Hawaiian shirt or sarong and throw on some appropriate music. Or you could browse online for some other fun themes: a curry evening with a Bollywood movie chaser, perhaps, or a Spanish-style tapas event that's worth sharing. You'll forget all about the rain with this kind of vibe taking place.

Night at the Museum

Unless your holiday is seriously off the grid, you're bound to have access to some cultural activities. In summer, many museums, heritage spots and places of interest have extended hours, too! You'll find it easy to take shelter under the roof of a museum and you may find some cool things to discover, too. If you're heading to a holiday destination, make a list of these kinds of places of interest before you go so you can simply grab your umbrella and head out without worrying about missing out on the beach or nature activities. If you've opted to stay in your home town, there are bound to be places you haven't explored yet, so this is your chance: find out what visitors are saying on a site like Trip Explorer and make the trip to those places yourself. You could even add some reviews of your own!

Give something back

There are always charity organisations looking for some volunteer support, and those organisations don't stop when it's raining! If looking after animals is your thing, maybe your local animal shelter is looking for help from volunteers looking to take their pups for a walk or to give them a bath. You could help with a beach clean-up day to make it ready for when the sun comes back, or you could make the world a better place by tidying up litter, one piece of plastic at a time. It's a great way to meet like-minded people who love the planet and the creatures who live on it, too.

Zombies on Vacation

Slotting in some entertainment

You don't need to be a high roller to enjoy some casino action. In fact, you don't even need to go to a casino! You can enjoy some top-rated online casino action from home or even your hotel room. Many online casinos provide superb welcome offers and bonus rewards, so you could get started playing even on a tiny budget.
