Summer is almost over and a recent survey suggests more Americans are not taking vacations.

The survey by Allianz Travel Insurance finds 56 percent of Americans say they have not taken a vacation within the past 12 months, up from 52 percent from the previous year.

It is unclear what is behind the trend. But other studies have found employees often put off vacation time because they worry they will be replaced.

There are plenty of last-minute bargains for people who have a chance to escape in the last weeks before the end of summer.

Archana Ram, staff writer at San Diego Magazine and blogger at MySoCal'd Life and San Diego travel writer Alison DaRosa share ideas for summer staycations and weekend getaways Monday on Midday Edition.
