According to the latest numbers from the staffing and recruiting agency Adecco, 36 percent of American workers get 3 weeks or more of vacation from their employer per year. And many Americans don’t even take that much time off every year — however, 66 percent say they would be happy with more vacation.

Since the 1950s, the polling firm Gallup has been asking Americans where they would go on vacation if money were no object. In their latest survey, Hawaii tops the dream list, followed by Australia and Italy.

The results show big differences from the 1950s, according to Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport. He notes that California dominated as the top domestic location for vacation, while France and the United Kingdom led the pack overseas.

“France doesn’t appear now in the top ten at all,” says Newport.
