A Pool is the Perfect Main Attraction
A swimming pool is essential for your staycation destination. If you are Getting Started with a New Pool, Goodall Pools has in-ground and above-ground pools to choose for your centerpiece.

Maybe you have had a pool for several years and it needs some upgrades. Goodall Pools also offers Pool Liners and Backyard Renovations to help you give your pool a needed update or to modernize it for a brand new look.
Accessories Provide More Amazement
There are a few must-haves for the pool area in order to make a staycation successful. Floats and pool noodles are always popular. They can be used for lazy time in the water or for some fun games.
A fountain is also a great addition for amusement in the pool. Splashing is synonymous with swimming, and a fountain is the perfect place to get the splashing in.
Finishing a staycation day with a night swim is also a great idea. LED lights make wonderful pool accessories and there is a diverse variety to choose from.
Always Prepare for Munching All Day
Swimming will make the whole family hungry … all day long. An outdoor kitchen is ideal for a staycation. If that’s not a possibility, keep a cooler of ice-cold drinks in the shade near the pool. Hydration is important, especially with the sun at its hottest. Non-perishable snacks will also come in handy as everyone gets the munchies.
A grill is another wonderful backyard accessory to have. Grilling your favorite meat to enjoy at the end of the day will make a day of staycation that much better.
Anticipate Possibilities for Much Needed Dozing
A staycation will keep everyone busy. Make sure there are plenty of spots for anyone who needs to stop for a little rest. A lounge chair or two on the deck is one popular option — the perfect place to soak up some sun and take a little break or read a book.
Maybe you need a spot that is a little more of a relaxing place to pause and relax. Backyard Bliss Begins with a Spa, and we can help you find one to make your staycation even more memorable. When you get tired and sore from all the swimming, a therapeutic hydromassage is the perfect solution.
