Link Friday: The 2016 Labor Day Edition

Posted on Thursday, September 1, 2016 by Kate

Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer and the season’s last travel hurrah.

  • This is where we’d tell you what AAA is predicting in terms of Labor Day travel, but apparently, they’ve decided to stop doing so.
  • That’s because, believe it or not, Labor Day isn’t one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. But don’t assume that means you’ll be alone on the highways. The cheapest gas in more than a decade means you’ll have plenty of company out on the road.
  • Low prices at the pump mean now is a great time to encourage travelers to pay your area a visit with an end of summer road trip! That means selling yourself – if you aren’t sure how, hire a destination marketing firm and leave it to the experts.
  • Know what else Labor Day weekend is good for? Shopping. Check out the best things to buy in September (pssst – one of the things is your holiday travel tickets!).
