Aside from boosting the economy by vacationing to new or familiar cities and visiting local businesses, what are the perks of vacationing? Why should you vacation? Well – it’s in the science!
Improved Familial Relationships
Vacations bring people together. Maybe even people you typically don’t get to see outside the vacation you had planned! Spending time with those you’re closest to keeps relationships strong and fosters lifelong memories.
Improved Physical & Mental Health Health
Time away can do your body and mind wonders! Being away from the stress that work brings allows your body and mind to heal in ways that it couldn’t under pressure. Because stress contributes to heart disease and high blood pressure, studies show that taking a vacation every 2 years compared to every 6 lessens the risks of heart attacks and coronary heart disease.
Taking time away from work is proven to boost your creativity and perspective. You are guaranteed to be more productive at work following a vacation!
Something To Look Forward To!
During this hard time when everything seems uncertain, looking for places to vacation gives you something to plan for, something to have hope in! Research shows that just by planning a vacation will boost happiness up to 8 weeks before the trip!
We have welcomed vacationing families to our small beach community since 1986. Bluewater is a family owned business who has seen how vacationers positively impact our local economy. Did you know with every $100 spent at a local small business, $68 stays in the community? When shopping at large national companies, only $43 of that $100 stays in the local community!
Your vacation plans not only have proven health benefits, but your annual beach vacation creates jobs. Bluewater has over 150 full time year-round employees and our workforce increases to nearly 500 in the summer months. These are locals who love this community as much as our vacationers do. We hope once the travel ban is lifted and life finds some sort of normalcy, you will be counting down the days to your Crystal Coast vacation and allowing our local businesses and local employees to serve you.
