Do your Labor Day plans include an end-of-summer trip? If so, you might be traveling to one of the top U.S. destinations for the holiday.
I researched several dozen websites to see which popular spots are attracting consumers for Labor Day 2014 travel. Here are the results:
1. New York City
3. Las Vegas
5. Washington, D.C.
6. San Francisco, San Diego
7. Boston, Miami, Atlanta
8. Seattle, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Denver
9. Palm Springs, Jersey Shore
If you want to have fun at the beach, three of these cities made a Travel Channel list of hurricane-free beaches: the Jersey Shore, San Diego, and Chicago. See this article for other beach recommendations.
If reading about these cities whets your appetite for travel after Labor Day, you may be able to find bargains.
You could save 20 to 40 percent in cities such as Dallas, Seattle, Orlando, and New Orleans, according to Peter Greenberg, travel journalist.
Best wishes for your Labor Day celebration whether you’re traveling or enjoying your city.
