Health and well-being matters!
Plan for Vacation Day - Tuesday, Jan. 25th

Ah, that feeling of vacation bliss—when you can truly unwind, unplug and relax. For so many of us, that feeling seems like a distant memory. The pandemic has caused us to largely put vacation planning on the back burner, despite the fact that close to eight in 10 (79%) Americans believe vacations are important to their overall health and well-being (Destination Analysts).

Chances are you’ve been carrying a heavy load. Break free from burnout and this National Plan for Vacation Day, let’s do something to give ourselves a lift—ignite that spark we get from the “booking confirmation” page. On January 25, let’s take time to plan all of our time off for the year at the start of the year. And if you need some inspiration, check out for a few ideas, including:

  1. An art stroll around town--have you seen Bask lit up at night?
  2. Take a history lesson on the walking path at Merriam Historic Plaza, or download the free Otocast app and learn about Merriam's history digitally while you visit a few sites!
  3. Make time to play at Merriam parks -- check out the parks page in the Merriam Visitor Guide and see how many parks you can visit this spring.
  4. Grab a bite at a restaurant you've not tried yet in Merriam. 
  5. Get some fresh air with a walk along the Turkey Creek Streamway Trail.

Happy planning from the Merriam Visitors Bureau!
