Maximizing Your Getaways: From 11 Days Off to 44 Days of Adventure!

As avid travelers, we at Horizon Travel Agency understand the yearning for adventure, especially against the backdrop of the hardworking culture prevalent in the US. While many global counterparts enjoy ample vacation days, Americans often feel left behind. However, we've unraveled a formula that's set to transform your 2024 travel plans without resigning from work!

Unlocking The Vacation Code:

For the sake of this guide, we're assuming a typical Monday-to-Friday workweek. We'll merge weekends, the 11 days of Paid Time Off (PTO), and National Public Holidays to weave a vacation tapestry like no other.

Jan 1: New Year's Day

Jan 15: Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Feb 19: Presidents' Day

May 27: Memorial Day

Jun 19: Juneteenth

Jul 4: Independence Day

Sep 2: Labor Day

Oct 14: Columbus Day

Nov 11: Veteran's Day

Nov 28: Thanksgiving

Dec 25: Christmas Day

Your 2024 Travel Blueprint:
