Virginia Tourism has worked tirelessly on their most recent campaign to “Crush Friday”. For more than 20 years, Americans have been overworked and not taking full advantage of their paid vacation days. This leads to high stress, anxiety, and ultimately job hopping. Last year 54% of Americans left a total of 662 million vacation days unused. What would you rather be doing- working or taking a day off to go to the beach or music festival, spent over an amazing rosé or a dozen Olde Salts, on a mountaintop or paddleboard?
After spending the last year, promoting the benefits of vacation days, we are finally seeing a rise in the use of paid vacation days! Virginia Tourism wants to help you avoid workplace burn-out, and enjoy all that Virginia has to offer. Try it for yourself. Ask your boss for a day off. It’s time to take a well-deserved day—and crush it. Come experience how much better your Friday can be when you trade 8 hours of work for 24 hours to experience all Virginia has to offer.
