Travel Tips to Help You Plan a Getaway During Labor Day Weekend

  • Plan Ahead: Labor Day weekend is known as being one of the busiest travel times of the year for US travelers. So, it's always best practice to plan your trip way ahead of time. As they say, the early bird gets the worm. Avoid grabbing last-minute rates at a fortune or there being limited availability for accommodations.

  • Be Flexible: Plan ahead and request extra days off with enough notice. Then you can make a weeklong trip to somewhere further out, where peak tourist seasons are on a comedown or consider traveling a bit closer to home, making a day trip to a nearby amusement park, beach, or hiking trail. Be a tourist in your home.
