You Need a Vacation…but Why?

In Margaritaville, we use Escape Day as a reminder that going on vacation is an essential part of life and should be recognized as such. It’s how we connect with family, play and treat ourselves.

Vacations are full of new experiences that become stories. We tell these stories until we make new ones on the next escape. That is one of the reasons why we vacation.

And over the years, we’ve seen your ability to document your escapes on social media. In other words, WE LOVE THE PHOTOS OF YOUR VACATIONS.

From this love, we decided it was important learn more from the escape artist in you and ask social media: Why do you go on vacation?

See, everyone will tell you what they do and where they go on vacation, but to truly understand the importance of a vacation, we want to know why!

Listen, we get it. You work hard. You show up at work, at home and everywhere in between and deliver day in and day out. You do it with a smile on your face. You not only deserve a vacation, it’s a necessity. It’s how you press the refresh button so you can continue to perform a high level.

Whether it’s a leisurely stroll, a workout, floating in a pool, getting a massage, reading a book, going to your favorite restaurant or booking a trip to your favorite Hotel & Resort, here are some of our favorite responses to why you vacation.

Here are more outtakes that couldn’t make the video!
