A Wakefield PR survey on behalf of Best Western has gotten the attention of USA Today Snapshot editors! Two stats have been featured and we think it’s because they’re getting the vacation itch leading up to Memorial Day!

What stats got them thinking about their summer vacations?

  • Americans are split on whether or not they’ll use their vacation days this year – 49% of adults plan on using their days, while 51% will not.
  • Twenty-nine percent of American travelers (ages 21+) believe constantly checking work email / voicemail is the worst ‘vacation crime’.  Other annoying vacation behaviors include, sleeping the day away (23%), skipping exciting plans to get business done (21%), not stepping out of your comfort zone (16%), and wearing obnoxious tourist gear (11%).
