ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia travel agents say people are still taking vacations, but they are shorter.

CareerBuilder did a survey and found a third of American workers aren't planning a vacation this year.

And if vacationers can find a better price on a different trip, they're changing plans.

"People are still doing the beach trips however some are realizing cost of the condos, cost of food and so on and so forth," said Dennis Fenton of  Your Travel Connection. "For a three, four night trip to the beach, one can take a cruise out of Jacksonville, Port Canaveral, or Tampa for less than what they spend for a few nights in Panama City."

Agents say hotels are offering pretty competitive rates in some of the nation's larger cities.
