It’s time to put down the phone, check out of email and recharge your batteries. Memorial Day has passed, and it’s time for summer vacation.
Are you ready? Or are you struggling with the mere idea of being disconnected?
Frame it in these terms: Vacation could actually enhance your work product.
In the words of Sir Richard Branson “When you go on vacation, your routine is interrupted; the places you go and the new people you meet can inspire you in unexpected ways.”
According to TripAdvisor, 45% of U.S. survey respondents are heading to the beach to get inspired this summer, followed closely by cities, where 42% will try to think outside the box.
The top 10 U.S. destinations this summer are:
1. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
2. Las Vegas, Nevada
3. New York City, New York
4. Destin, Florida
5. Ocean City, Maryland
6. Orlando, Florida
7. Virginia Beach, Virginia
8. San Francisco, California
9. San Diego, California
10. Key West, Florida
