Staycations: How Americans Spend Their Summers

9 Aug

Two-thirds of Americans have taken a “staycation,” according to a recent LivingSocial survey. With the average vacation cost weighing in at a whopping $1,180 per person, it’s no wonder!

As if it weren’t sad enough that Americans only get an average of 14 vacation days per year — an international low — more than half of Americans say that increased gas prices affect their summer travel plans. Oy, come on, America.
