Pheasant Run Resort Plans for Spring Break on National Plan for Vacation Day

ST CHARLES, IL, JANUARY 29, 2019 - As part of National Plan for Vacation on January 29, Pheasant Run Resort is already planning for Spring Break vacations in Chicagoland.

Every year more than half of Americans (52%) fail to use all their time off, creating a stockpile of 705 million unused vacation days, up from 662 million days the year before.

"National Plan for Vacation Day is an opportunity for Americans and for America. And who better than the travel industry to help plan the perfect vacation?" said Roger Dow, President and CEO, U.S. Travel Association. "America offers something for everyone, whether you prefer a sunny day at the beach or a snowball fight in the mountains. We encourage every American to plan their time off to explore our great country."

The most effective remedy for American workers who want to use more vacation days is better planning. Yet just over half (52%) of households set aside time to plan the use of their vacation time each year.

"Pheasant Run Resort is celebrating National Plan for Vacation Day because we want to encourage Americans to take their well-deserved time off," said France Langan, General Manager, Pheasant Run Resort. "And what better way to take a day than to plan your Spring Break travel with your family? Families can enjoy the Family Fun package during both the St Charles School District Spring Break March 25th-31st and during the Chicago School District Spring Break April 15th-21st.

With the Family Fun Package, families enjoy breakfast before splashing around in the unique indoor/outdoor pool, plus tokens for the on-site arcade room and food and beverage credits. With plenty of spring break activities and entertainment to choose from, families will get that family time they are craving. By committing to planning for Spring Break on January 29, travelers can all reap the benefits of taking a break while giving your family something to look forward to."

Research shows that planners have a distinct advantage over non-planners: They use more of their time, take longer vacations, and are happier.

  • 53 percent of planners took all of their vacation time vs. 43 percent of non-planners.
  • Planners are also more likely than non-planners to use all or most of their time off to travel (33% to 18%).
  • More planners report they are "very" or "extremely" happy with their personal relationships (81% vs. 68%), health and well-being (56% vs. 43%), company (57% vs. 50%), and job (56% vs. 48%) compared to non-planners.

To help employees get their vacation days on the calendar, U.S. Travel Association created a vacation planning tool. By simply entering the number of days off earned, users can plot out their trips or vacations for the year, export to their work or personal calendar, and share with their family and co-workers.

National Plan for Vacation Day is celebrated the last Tuesday in January as a day to encourage Americans to plan their vacation days for the rest of the year at the start of the year. Start planning your Chicagoland Spring Break vacation at pheasantrun.com.
