Over 50% of Americans did not use all of their earned vacation time last year! That’s millions of days families didn’t use to spend more time together to travel. And what we know at the Family Travel Association is that vacations, of any length of time and distance from home, are distinctly powerful events that help strengthen family bonds, help children improve their ability to learn at school, and create lifetime memories.
By Taking The Pledge, your family is boldly proclaiming your intention to prioritize vacation time in the coming year . . . and beyond.
