Last-Minute Labor Day Weekends Worth the Splurge

Squeeze out the last drops of summer in style


The holiday that honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the country has become all about sales and spending time outside, preferably on the beach, at a lake, or in the backcountry, depending on where you live.

People can sense the end of lazy days and recreational activities. The end is near but you can still find several last-minute vacation options leading up to the last long holiday weekend of the summer.

This year about 25 percent of Americans plan to get out of town for Labor Day weekend.

Take advantage of that extra day off and travel. Explore a new destination while the temperatures are still enjoyable. Enjoy the unofficial end of summer like royalty even if you don’t want to go to a beach.

Stay in luxurious hotels within close proximity to the Labor Day events. Some that are far are also worth the money and time. Enjoy spa treatments, state-of-the-art fitness centers, heated pools and other high-end accommodations.
