Labor Day is fast approaching and you know what that means? Besides being able to celebrate the American Labor Movement, it means that we’ve got a long weekend coming our way!
I am a big fan of long weekends because they are an ideal time to plan a local getaway that you otherwise probably wouldn’t have time for. Haven’t planned anything yet for Labor Day? No worries!
I am going to share some cheap, last minute accommodation ideas that you can use this Labor Day that will be sure to satisfy the whole family.
Inexpensive Labor Day Accommodation Ideas
1. Go Camping!
Instead of purchasing an expensive hotel room (or two if you’ve got a big family) save some money and go camping instead! This is a great way to still have that weekend out of the house without spending a lot of $$ on just hotel accommodations.
Sometimes it is difficult finding a last-minute campsite, especially during holiday weekends. The Dyrt makes it easy to find and review campsites throughout the entire state of Utah. So whether you decide to head to the forested mountains in Northern Utah, or down south in red rock country, this app will help you find the best (and best priced) campsite available.
2. Give Glamping a Try!
If you’re not a fan of camping, consider ditching the dirt floor and go glamping (luxury camping) instead! Glamping is the perfect way to save a few extra dollars from an expensive hotel room, yet still avoiding the work of setting up your own tent.
My favorite options include these luxury tents in Moab, conestoga wagon camping in Capitol Reef, or sleeping in a Yurt! For a full list of all the best glamping options, check out Glamping Hub.
3. Ever Rented an Airbnb?
Another great way to save money during your weekend getaway in Utah is renting an airbnb! I especially love this airbnb tucked away in the mountains in Heber, Utah.
Since everyone and their dog loves coupons, here’s a great one just for you! Take $40 off of your airbnb booking for first time users and enjoy a great weekend getaway in Utah this Labor Day!
I hope you get to use one of these three, inexpensive ways to save money on your accommodations during this Labor Day weekend. Stay safe and enjoy!
