5 Tips For Planning Your Labor Day Weekend Road Trip


Traveling on the Labor Day weekend can be a very stressful experience, if you don’t have a plan.

  • Before you do anything, make sure you get your vehicle checked out and ready for the trip. The last thing you want is to interrupt your holiday weekend by sitting on the side of the road waiting for hours for roadside assistance. Not a good start to your holiday.
  • Next is to plan the time you leave. Very early in the morning on either Friday or Saturday will get you ahead of the madness by a few hours, and also make your trip less stressful.
  • Pack a snack to eat on the road the night before so you don’t delay leaving early. You can always stop a few hours into the trip for breakfast.
  • Don’t be in a hurry to get to your destination. Relax and take your time and enjoy the trip. Being in a big rush can affect your concentration on the road which could be dangerous, especially during a time like the Labor Day weekend, when there are so many people on the road rushing to get to their own destination.
  • When leaving to return home, leave either early in the morning or very late at night. Sitting in miles and mile of slow traffic for hours isn’t the best way to end a great weekend.

Getting to your weekend destination safely and in time requires planning. Don’t leave it to the last minute or you will be kicking yourself later.
