San Diego is the second most booked destination for travel during Labor Day, according to a recent survey from the American Automotive Association.
According to the Auto Club’s late summer survey, about 32 percent of Americans will travel for Labor Day weekend. The survey shows Las Vegas as the leading destination for Southern Californians, while San Diego lands second and Orlando third based on hotel, cruise, and tour bookings during the holiday weekend.
“More international destinations are open to travelers without COVID-19 testing and vaccination requirements,” said Heather Felix, the Auto Club’s vice president of travel products & services. “Right now, travelers can find some great deals for future travel, especially on cruises. For those who want to travel in the fall, the best advice is to get those plans in place as soon as possible due to the pent-up demand, work with a reputable travel advisor who is aware of the requirements where you want to go and consider travel insurance that would cover trip interruptions.”
AAA travel advisors found the top eight travel destinations for Southern Californians are:
- Las Vegas
- San Diego
- Fort Lauderdale
The survey also found that 82 percent of travelers will drive to their destination. The company plans to assist 58,788 stranded drivers during the Labor Day weekend.
To avoid a breakdown on a road trip, AAA recommends drivers inspect tires, batteries, belts, hoses, and fluid levels, or have vehicles inspected by a trusted mechanic.
