According to a recent CNN.com poll, the majority of the 1,100 people who participated said that vacations are as important now as they were before the recession and nearly 25% said that vacations were more important now.
A healthy 67% said they will cut back on entertainment and eating out, more than 50% will postpone a major purchase and about 33% will trim health and beauty expenses in order to afford going away. Not sure about trimming health expenses...that one scares me!
This is good news for the vacation industry, the timeshare industry and just about everyone else. I said it before and I'll say it again...you can't put a price on a vacation. They're the type of memories that last forever. Don't get into debt to go on a vacation and remember that you don't have to travel thousands of miles away from home in order to have a good time and make memories.
Enjoy your vacations and take every vacation day you've earned. Life is too short...enjoy yourself!
