Hitting the road or friendly skies for a Labor Day Weekend getaway? You’re not alone.
The holiday, which many celebrate as the unofficial end of summer, is a popular time for Americans to take a vacation. But if you don’t like crowds, you probably shouldn’t head to the City by the Bay.
Hotel search website trivago reports that San Francisco is the most popular destination for travelers looking to head out of town for the historic holiday. Rounding out the top five: Orlando, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York City.
If you’ve got an itch for one last summer hurrah, but are hoping not to spend a fortune on accommodation, trivago says great hotel deals can be found in the South and Midwest over the long weekend. In Savvanah, Ga., hotels can be found for an average price of $122 and in Williamsburg, Va., a standard double room will set you back $125/night.
One state Labor Day travelers might want to explore if they’re seeking affordable accommodation is Florida, where Daytona Beach, Orlando and Tampa rank among the top cities with relatively low hotel prices.
