“Where are you going for Labor Day?” It’s a question you’re bound to hear a lot over the course of the next week, whether or not you have travel plans. After all, for most people it’s a three-day weekend and the unofficial last hurrah of summer. So, whether you have plans, don’t have plans or you’re looking for a popular last-minute destination, the travel technology company Switchfly has compiled the 10 most popular Labor Day destinations for 2015.
“What we really have here is a short-list of the best beaches that are easy to reach from the major U.S. hubs,” said Daniel Farrar, CEO of Switchfly, “Cancun is about a 4-hour flight from LAX and Aruba is a 4-hour flight from JFK. You’ve got people from the West Coast flying to Mexico, people from the East Coast flying to the Bahamas, and people from all over the U.S. are flying to Florida because it’s close and it’s inexpensive.”
The 10 Most Popular Labor Day Destinations:
#10 Miami, Florida
#9 Oranjestad, Aruba
#8 Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
#7 New York, New York
#3 Orlando, Florida
Farrar continued: “It’s no surprise to see New York and Las Vegas on the list, as they are top travel destinations year-round.”
