Looking forward to a long weekend this Labor Day? It may be your last chance this summer to take off for a much-needed vacation. Don’t worry if your summer travel budget is tapped. There are low cost Labor Day destinations ready to welcome you for some late summer fun.


New York - New York City is the most popular Labor Day destination according to Orbitz. Maybe it’s because you can pack so much in to one weekend. Average airfare rates have increased by 12% to $329 compared to last year, but you can expect hotels to cost about the same. The average nightly rate over the holiday weekend is $229. In fact Orbitz advises checking out Park Central Hotel in Manhattan where some rooms are discounted by 30% for the holiday weekend.


Denver - According to the Orbitz Insider Index, Denver is offering some of the best hotel deals over the Labor Day weekend. Officials say you can easily find hotel stays for around $89 a night. A recent survey shows Denver as the fourth most popular Labor Day destination.


Atlanta - Atlanta is another great place to head for Labor Day weekend. Orbitz travel experts say round trip airfare is reasonably priced around $269 and hotels can be found for $98 a night. You’ll also want to check out the $69 Atlanta CityPASS which will help you save 51% off ticket prices to top local destinations.


Orlando - Haven’t hit Orlando yet this summer? Now may be the perfect time. Orbitz says hotels are as reasonable as $104 a night during Labor Day weekend and average airfare hovers around $240. Maybe that’s why this is ranked as the 7th most popular late summer travel destination.


Las Vegas - Heading to Vegas for Labor Day weekend isn’t much of a gamble—fun is almost guaranteed. It is, after all, the second most popular Labor Day weekend destination for 2011. The average price for a plane ticket is $325 and you can score a great room for around $139. You won’t need to rely on luck to stay within your travel budget.
