Travel and Leisure: Where to Travel Based on How Many Vacation Days you have Left This Year

With just a few months left in the year, chances are you have a few vacation days left to enjoy. Take a Day or two, or even a week to relax and recharge. Planning to take a long weekend? Consider Napa Valley. Ready to take on a longer adventure? How about a safari trip to South Africa? Jess McHugh considered it all:

For many office workers in the U.S., vacation time expires December 31, and it’s either use it, or lose it. U.S. workers left some 662 million vacation days unused in 2016, according to a report by Project: Time Off. To help encourage people to travel and take the time off they’ve earned, Travel + Leisure has launched “Operation Vacation,” a series of deals on destinations around the world.

There’s no need to let vacation time slip away, and whether you have a couple days or an entire week left, use that time to travel instead of running errands, sleeping, or beginning the dreaded march into holiday shopping.
