Chances are you’re hitting the road or taking to the skies this weekend. If you’ve had a summer full of weekend getaways like me, you’re probably having mixed emotions. Labor Day is always good for a little R&R (after all, the holiday is all about honoring workers) but because we travelers have come to associate it with the end of summer and the end of our carefree escapes, it’s a little sad too.
But don’t think of Labor Day as the end of summer – think of it is the beginning of an autumn filled with travel possibilities. The Wall Street Journal reports that the week after Labor Day marks the beginning of the off season (read: deals). That’s just one reason why the end of the summer can be a good thing.
