Millions of Americans are getting set to hit the road for the last long weekend of summer. If you’re traveling for Labor Day, expect more company at the airport and on the highway, but decent prices at the gas pumps.
The number of Americans traveling for Labor Day will be at its highest level since the recession, according to a forecast from AAA.
The majority of the 34.1 million travelers taking a trip at least 50 miles from home will be on the road, 29.2 million Americans traveling by car, with gas prices for the period running lower than last year.
Another 2.6 million will fly.
The busiest travel day of the Labor Day period will be Friday, Aug. 30, when 46 percent plan to make their getaway. The second busiest day is Monday, Sept. 2 for the big return.
According to bookings on travel website Orbitz, the top U.S. destinations for the long weekend are Las Vegas, New York, and Chicago. Internationally Cancun came out on top.
Labor Day weekend may be the unofficial end of summer, but it won’t be the end of the weekend getaway.
