Travel Oregon Gets You Discounts on Oregon Places to Stay

(Portland, Oregon) – Officials at the U.S. Travel Association want Americans to just chill every once in awhile. The national organization says it’s time to take a break. Why? Research shows this country is a work-dominated culture, and that taking time off can improve personal relationships, professional performance and overall health and wellness.

Enter the creation of National Plan for a Vacation Day, which happens every last Tuesday in January. In that spirit, Travel Oregon is participating, along with with the Oregon Restaurant and Lodging Association (ORLA), and both are partnering with hotels across the state to offer a 20% discount for anyone who books between January 28-31 for a future stay. Whether you're planning a long weekend or a 10-day trip, Oregon offers a diverse array of adventures. For some inspiration, read "Your Perfect Oregon Trip, Based on Your Vacation Days." Ready to book? Find a list of participating lodging properties across the state here, covering southern Oregon, the valley regions, the north and southern Oregon coast, the eastern part of the state as well as Portland and the Columbia Gorge.

Travel Oregon said that in 2018, more than 55 percent of U.S. workers did not utilize their vacation days, which builds up to some 768 million unused vacation days nationwide. 9.6 million days of that were left on the table by Oregonians. Those who do take advantage of their days off report greater happiness, studies show.

So Travel Oregon and the ORLA want state residents to just kick back a little more – and dig into what their state has to offer.

"As Oregonians, we're lucky to work and live in a uniquely beautiful place. Letting earned vacation days slip away feels especially unacceptable here," says Todd Davidson, CEO of Travel Oregon. "However, we can use the beginning of the year to pull out the calendar and start planning for the entire year. Research shows that those who plan are far more likely to take their vacation time and Oregon affords her residents amazing experiences at a variety of price levels in every corner of the state."

To help employees get their vacation days on the calendar, U.S. Travel Association created a vacation planning tool. By simply entering the number of days off earned, users can begin to plot out their vacations for the year, export them to their work or personal calendars, and share with their family and co-workers.

Among the highlights are staying at luxury suites at the sprawling winery Willamette Valley Vineyards just south of Salem, the cozy, retro Agate Beach Motel in Newport on the central coast, and the elegant Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa in Pacific City.
