Has the high price of air fare, hotel, and rental cars got you down? Have you been dreaming of taking a vacation, but you can’t spare the vacation days? Join the club! In the next six months, 136 million Americans plan to take at least one leisure tip, or day trip, to visit nearby attractions. 

Even though Americans earn fewer vacation days than workers in other countries, we still tend to leave an average of 2 days unused – because we’re banking days for the future, can’t coordinate it, can’t afford it, or it would require us to schedule too far in advance. Hotel rates in major US cities are on the rise – San Francisco’s average hotel room rate jumped from $136 in 2010 to $158 in 2012. Put the hotel rooms, rental car, and airfare together for a week-long vacation for a family of four and you’ve got a $4167 trip! With a price tag like that, you’ll barely have any spare change left to enjoy the local sights and sounds.

Do the environmentally-conscious thing and stimulate your local economy with a suSTAYnable vacation this summer.
