Last-Minute Labor Day Trip Ideas


Newark Airport Parking

Labor Day is only a couple weeks away, but it’s not too late to plan a getaway! Whether you want to take one last family vacation before school starts or you want to live it up with your friends, our Newark Airport parking company has a few ideas for where to go:

Lake Tahoe

Did you miss your chance to take a lake trip this summer? Head to Lake Tahoe in California/Nevada this Labor Day. While many flock to the area during the winter, late summer yields 55 acres of forestry, beaches, and coves to discover. You can also enjoy swimming, floating, and all of your favorite water sports on the lake.


When it comes to ideal times to visit Seattle, Labor Day is one of them. The city’s rainy/cloudy season hasn’t set in yet, so you’ll still get beautiful, sunny weather and warm temperatures. Stroll through the famous Pike Place Market, take in the mountain views from atop the Space Needle, or learn about the city’s history with an underground tour.

Grand Canyon National Park

If you still haven’t seen this iconic wonder, Labor Day is a great time to do so. You’ll still enjoy the warm daytime temperatures and nighttime temperatures won’t be at freezing yet, meaning you can still set up a tent and camp out. In addition, the summer crowds will be thinner, so you’ll have more of the canyon to yourself.


Every year, the Windy City calls to thousands of jazz fans with its Labor Day Chicago Jazz Festival, and this year is no different. See a variety of local and world-renowned jazz musicians in the famous Millennium Park (for free!), then enjoy the rides, shops, and food at Navy Pier or watch the Cubs take on the Phillies or Brewers.

The Oregon Coast

Looking for a beach trip that’s unlike your traditional beach trip? Head to the Oregon Coast. Places like Rockaway Beach, Cannon Beach, Seaside, and Lincoln City have the traditional charm of a coastal beach town with unique scenery like giant sea stacks, sheer rock cliffs, and rolling hills. You’ll also find a variety of sea life and wildlife.

Santa Fe

Whether you want to spend your Labor Day weekend learning about Spanish history, hiking through colorful rock landscapes, or relaxing at a spa resort, Santa Fe, New Mexico lets you do all of them. Plan your getaway to be as active or as tranquil as you’d like – either way, you’ll enjoy the warm, end-of-summer temperatures.


If Austin, Texas or Portland, Oregon is your type of city, take a trip to Asheville, North Carolina. The small city is nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains and is filled with young, friendly locals. Stroll through the streets and you’ll find restaurants, bars, breweries, bakeries, and coffee shops that are locally owned and full of character.

No matter where you go, be sure to skip the chaotic Labor Day Newark Airport parking and park with Vista instead!
