National Plan for Vacation Day

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

This year, we’re asking that people resolve to use their well-earned vacation time by taking an easy weekend trip right here in Illinois. It is joining a national effort by U.S. Travel Association and Project: Time Off around National Plan for Vacation Day, celebrated on January 31 (#PlanForVacation). It is a day to encourage Americans to plan their vacations for the year. According to a recent study by the U.S. Travel Association and Project: Time Off, nearly 658 million vacation days were left on the table last year. That means millions of Americans are forfeiting their chance to rest, recharge and experience the world around them at a cost to the workplace, economy and local community.

We hope you’ll resolve to #VisitDeKalbCounty in 2017!
