Travelers across the nation are embracing the daycation, a hot travel trend that doesn’t require a plane ticket. Similar to a staycation, in which you spend the night at a hotel in your home city, the daycation involves visiting local hotels to luxuriate in their spa amenities. Here in LA, locals can easily find deals to try out both trends.
