Some people are crazy. And we don’t mean crazy like your ex. We mean cra-zy, as in why in the af aren’t you using your vacation days!?!?
A staggering 52% of Americans had unused vacay days last year.
If you can’t leave your homestead make at least a staycation your thang. WalletHub has the scoop on the best and worst cities for staycations.
The best city? Honolulu. Not shocking at all. Orlando is second, followed by Chicago. Here’s a tidbit-- Orlando has the most zoos and aquariums per square root population. All kinds of fun there.
What’s the worst city? Chula Vista, CA, followed by Oxnard, CA, and Yonkers, NY. All three of these places sound like armpits. Seriously. If an armpit had a universal sound, it would be the names of these cities.
Here’s where your city ranks when it comes to staying local for vacay:
Crack Wise-dom: We want to start a thing where you can buy a co-worker’s unused vacation days. Let’s say your co-worker, Hal is a complete suck-ass and thinks she’s so valuable that she can’t even fathom the thought of using all of her time off. You swoop in and realize: one—that vacations are necessary for good mental health; And two—Hal's an idiot. No one is valuable. So, you offer Hal $50 for one of her unused vacation days because your Uncle Larry is retiring and he’s traveling to Greece and wants you to join him for a visit. Everybody wins. Especially since Uncle Larry bought a one-way ticket and you never have to see him again. More winning!
