Labor Day weekend is often seen as summer’s last-chance for fun. Most Americans enjoy an extended holiday weekend, but getting the time off is only half the battle. Finding affordable activities is another challenge. Here are some of the hot picks for Labor Day 2012.
New York City
Discount travel site Hotwire.com says New York City is the top choice for Labor Day weekend getaways. That’s because it’s more of an off-season destination where travelers can get more for their money. In New York City, average Hotwire hotel prices are $185 a night. Once you’re in New York City there are plenty of free and low-cost activities to fill your holiday weekend.
Anaheim is theme park heaven, especially for those on the west coast. And this Labor Day it’s a hot destination, according to Orbitz.com. That’s because airfare is down by 11 percent compared to last year and it’s also a top spot for hotel deals where the average daily hotel rate is $117, down 20 percent compared to 2011.
According to Hotwire’s top ten Labor Day 2012 destinations, Orlando is where you’ll find the best bargains. The average price per night at a hotel in this family friendly destination is just $56, making it the most affordable place to travel for Labor Day.
