Sunny 106.3 Mornings With Gina Birch

Weekdays 6am - 10am

Labor Day Weekend is just days at away. If you are looking to get out of town to celebrate, Airbnb has a list of top cities for a Labor Day Getaway. The site has been connecting travelers and homeowners since 2008 and its popularity has skyrocketed. Many Airbnb devotees like the idea of staying in a cozy home or apartment in a city or destination. It adds a completely different element to travel than the ones found in hotels.

Sometimes the deals are better too. Other times, the accommodations are better suited for families or celebrations where more space and a different kind of privacy is desired. I’ve stayed in Airbnbs and similar home rental properties around the world. One of the things I like is connecting with owners who often have great insider tips on restaurants, shopping and more. That’s especially helpful if it is your first time visiting an area.

According to Airbnb, last Labor Day, hotels and Airbnb hosts around the U.S. raked in more than $300 million combined.

Key Biscayne

A peaceful place to camp out for the day in Key Biscayne, a short drive for a Labor Day getaway.

Labor Day is traditionally the end of summer and transition into fall. No wonder coastal locations are a big draw. So are the Carolina’s.

This list from Airbnb is based on most nights booked for the long weekend, in trending cities across the nation. As one might expect, a couple of Florida cities made the top ten list.

Perhaps these destinations will inspire you or even give you a few new ideas. There is still time to plan a visit to one of these top cities for a Labor Day getaway.
