According to a national movement run by a coalition of former tourism professionals, called Project: Time Off, Americans do not use 658 million vacation days annually. In addition, less than 49% of households set aside time to plan. Over half of those that planned took all of their vacation time and reported increased happiness in relationships with family, children and partners.
