Stay Vacationed to Cure the Family Workaholic

Do you feel like you’re part of a ‘vacation starved’ society because your family never got away for that two-week beach break last summer?  Whether or not you have a workaholic at home, you probably are. According to the U.S. Travel and Tourism Association (USTA), there were 429 million paid vacation days forfeited in 2013. That means wage earners – many of them workaholics -- chose to work through 85 million paid vacation weeks instead of taking the time off with loved ones.

Michigan Lakefront Resort Makes Family Beach Vacations Easy

If everyone you know is headed to the beach this summer, remind them those lakefront resorts with crisp fresh water, lawns instead of sticky sand, and docks instead of paddleboards are where it's at.
