National Plan for Vacation Day

January 31st is National Plan for a Vacation Day which encourages Americans to declare their vacation days for the rest of the year, at the start of the year.


In our culture packed schedules, hyper-connectivity, and work martyrdom, American workers are in serious need of a break. It’s time to start thinking about how we want to spend our days and where. Vacations are not a luxury, they are a necessity for a well-balanced, healthy life – as important as eating well and getting exercise.

On average, Americans leave 658 million days unused each year and the single-most important step workers can take is to plan their time off in advance.



Life. Liberty. The pursuit of happiness. In Pennsylvania, these are not only American ideals – they are the very keystones of our way of life. So when you visit, here’s our challenge for you; pursue your own happiness. Whether you find it in the rugged beauty of our wilderness, the artistic spaces of our cultural centers, the hallowed grounds of our historical sites, or the welcoming small towns tucked away in our rural countryside…. Well, that’s up to you. Pennsylvania can cure your work burnout and we are happy to give you a few helpful tips in your vacation-planning process.

Sit back, pull up a chair, and enjoy reading up on some amazing destination spots that Pennsylvania has to offer. And remember, now is your time, take a stand against corporate America and declare your vacation with Pennsylvania. #PlanForVacation
