Experience Kissimmee Talks 'Why Vacations Are Good for You'

Dr. Mike in Kissimmee, Florida

Did you know on average 54% of Americans leave their vacation time left unused? That’s over 660 million vacation days that are left on the table per year.

When we read these statistics from Project: Time Off, we thought—Wow! There’s a lot of amazing vacation time going unused! Sounds like they might need a Kissimmee vacation.

Kissimmee is full of amazing attractions and natural wonders, shopping, dining, and entertainment. Kissimmee’s also the Vacation Home Capital of the World®, with more than 45,000 local accommodation options and 22,000 vacation home rentals. And since it’s just minutes from world-famous theme parks, 25 minutes from Orlando International Airport, and an hour and a half from both coasts, you’ll have your pick of vacation entertainment in this perfectly-positioned paradise.

So, we teamed up with Doctor Mike, someone who we knew was also passionate about health and well-being, to find out how you can improve your outlook with an exciting vacation.

Like Dr. Mike says, the benefits of taking a vacation are obvious, but Project: Time Off’s research shows more than half of Americans don’t take their vacation time.

Ditch the Stigma About Vacation Time

We get it—you’re worried about returning to more work, looking less dedicated to your company, or vacation planning itself can even be stressful.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to take your vacations. That’s why we provide helpful itineraries and ideas, like Things to Do for the whole family.

Work isn’t going anywhere—it’ll still be there when you get back. But memories? You’ve only got one shot at making those.

We encourage you to plan a vacation without laptops or cell phones. Technology makes us more connected than ever, but it also makes it harder to disconnect and take time to relax and refresh. The office is anywhere there’s Wi-Fi or a cellular signal.

Project: Time Off’s research shows people who plan vacations are more like to follow through and take them, so we thought National #PlanForVacation Day on January 30th was the perfect time to tell you to take some time off and come visit us.

Vacation Makes You More Productive

And there’s good news for bosses too—research shows people who take vacation actually have higher productivity and performance, a more positive attitude, and better relationships.

Sounds like a trip to sunny Kissimmee, Florida might be just what the doctor ordered.

You heard us, America: Vacations are good for you!
