BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, Louisiana's chief tourism ambassador, has an idea for where his state's residents should vacation: close to home.

As part of Tuesday's "National Plan for Vacation Day," Nungesser urged Louisianans to book trips around the state. The Republican lieutenant governor says they should see a part of the state they haven't seen. He encouraged them to visit .

Nungesser says Louisiana residents earned an estimated 34.7 million vacation days in 2017, but didn't use 8.9 million of those days - 25 percent of them.

The lieutenant governor's office says National Plan for Vacation Day is a country-wide effort to encourage people to schedule their vacation time.
