Water Safari Resort joins National Plan for Vacation effort


OLD FORGE — National Plan for Vacation Day, powered by U.S. Travel Association, is Tuesday, Jan. 25, and encourages Americans to plan their vacation days for the entire year at the start of the year. Many Americans fail to plan for vacations, experts say, and end up not using vacation time.

After nearly two years of pandemic stress and fatigue, NPVD is an opportunity for Americans to look ahead to brighter days and make plans for getaways or vacations over the coming months, the U.S. Travel Association said.

“Water Safari Resort is celebrating National Plan for Vacation Day and encourage people to take some much-needed time off,” said Katie Wojdyla, director of marketing for Water Safari Resort.

“By committing to planning on January 25, folks can enjoy the many benefits of taking a break while giving themselves something to look forward to—and Water Safari Resort has a limited time Splash Cash Deal to help you plan your perfect getaway,” the director of marketing added. 

Water Safari Resort will offer a
planning incentive with a special offer from Tuesday, Jan. 25, through Sunday, Jan. 30.

When customers buy $200 in Vacation Splash Cash they will receive a $20 bonus splash cash card free, officials said. 

Water Safari Resort features more than 50 rides, shows, and attractions, including 33 heated outdoor water rides, campground and hotel.

The facility encompasses Enchanted Forest Water Safari, Calypso’s Cove Family Fun Park, Old Forge Camping Resort and Water’s Edge Inn, according to the announcement.

Planning is the key to taking time off and traveling.

A new study from Destination Analysts, commissioned by U.S. Travel Association, reveals that Americans who plan out their paid time off take more time off to travel, but nearly one-quarter — 24% — of American households don’t take this simple step. 

National Plan for Vacation Day comes at a time when American workers report feeling extreme levels of burnout. According to Destination Analysts, more than two-thirds, 68%, of American workers feel at least moderately burned out and 13% are extremely burned out.

“The research reflects what so many have known for quite a while––that the stresses of the past year can, at least in part, be lifted by thinking about and planning time away to recharge and experience something new,” said U.S. Travel President and CEO Roger Dow.

“There are real benefits to getting vacation plans on the calendar at the start of the year which include the happiness associated with travel and committing to take off all the time that is earned for a well-deserved break,” the travel association president said.

Data also shows that while vacation is essential to Americans’ mental health and well-being, it is also a crucial benefit for American workers.

Nearly 70% of U.S. workers agree that their ability to take vacations is an important factor in keeping them in the workforce.

In fact, paid time off is the second most important employee benefit an employer could offer after health insurance benefits. 

“Americans say it is important to use their paid time off to travel. Vacation gives us a chance to recharge and reconnect with family and friends, as well as explore more of our beautiful, diverse country,” added Dow.

Water Safari Resort advises savvy vacation planners who are able to book future trips now to take advantage of these offers before demand picks up. 

“Splash Cash” can be used anytime year-round (not just summer) for an Adirondack Vacation Experience at
Old Forge Camping Resort or Water’s Edge Inn!
