survey also found that Americans are not very good at taking time off from their jobs. Just 36% of workers say they plan on using all of their paid vacation days this year. But 44% say they will take only half or less of their paid vacation days, including 13% that say they will not take any of their days at all. 

Not taking time off from work is not always the best policy as other studies have found that workers who take vacations are generally more productive and happier at their jobs.

Among the lucky Americans fortunate enough to be heading out for a summer vacation, the median amount they plan to spend is $1,000. But many plan on spending more than that with 24% expecting to drop $2,000 or more.
