If you vacation in your home country, there’s no customs to clear, no inspections to submit to, no trouble with currency. When you travel in the US, you’ll be able to be more flexible in your travel arrangements, because you don’t have to worry about complying with the regulations of a foreign country. More vacation time, less travel time.

6. It’s Good for the Economy
When you choose to spend your recreation money here at home, you are helping to stimulate the U.S. economy, which as we all know, can use all the help it can get. Tourism creates jobs, and provides income to the small and medium-sized businesses.

While it’s always good to expand your horizons, it’s quite possible to have a rewarding and fulfilling experience without leaving your home country. Next time you need to get away, consider doing it closer to home!
