Even though many of us may not be ready or able to travel just yet, there is a wealth of information that says simply planning a vacation can increase happiness. In fact, 97% of Americans surveyed by the NSTA say having a trip planned makes them happier. National Plan for Vacation Day is joining forces with Let's Go There initiative, which encourages us to dream about the next trip, and to know that when you're ready, the travel industry is also ready to safely welcome you back.
