Celebrate National #PlanForVacation Day with a Mackinac Island Vacation
Greetings from Michigan’s Crown Jewel where we’re celebrating National Plan For Vacation Day! Would you believe a whopping 705 Million vacation days went unused in 2017? That represents over 50% of America that left their time off on the table! Join the movement to use your days and visit Mackinac Island this season.
Experience the Benefits of Travel
Taking a vacation offers plenty of proven benefits at home, in the office, and within most personal relationships.
A more positive attitude
Improved mental and physical health
Better relationships and social life
And professionally, taking a vacation can lead to big things in the workplace. According to the US Travel Association, employees who take their vacation time are more likely than forfeiters to have been promoted within the last year (27% to 23%) and to have received a raise or bonus in the last three years (84% to 78%).
