4. Communication

Dealing with a language barrier can be tiring. If the object of your trip is to reduce stress, and you find haggling over the price of lunch in a foreign tongue is stressful, you’ll be relieved if you vacation at home.

5. Convenience

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.

Because of the cost differential, you can afford longer and more frequent vacations on home turf than you can going abroad. 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!
