National Plan for Vacation Day

We understand the value of vacation time for our relationships, personal well-being, and professional success. Yet, nearly half of Americans skip the one step that could help them vacation: planning. Individuals who plan are more likely to use all of their time off, take more vacation days at once, and report greater levels of happiness in every category measured. 

Fairfax County, Virginia is joining with the U.S. Travel Association on January 25, 2022 for National Plan for Vacation Day to encourage Americans to declare their vacation days for the rest of the year, at the start of the year. Below, you'll find some tools to help you plan and some inspiration on why we think Fairfax County might just be the getaway you need. #PlanForVacation
