ARDA outlines lasting benefits of timeshare vacations
Digital Journal
Does one of your top ten moments from 2013 include a memory from vacation — or are you among the many that left vacation days on the table this year? According to an annual study by Expedia, Americans earn among the fewest vacation days in the world each year, and also leave among the most vacation days unused – despite research that shows the benefits of vacationing. The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) challenges Americans to re-think vacation as a necessity instead of a luxury, and to resolve to take one in the New Year.

The Conflict Islands were so named after their 1886 discovery by naval ­survey ship The Conflict.
