Even though it feels like the middle of summer, many people are already making plans to get away for the long Labor Day weekend. Even the nation’s smallest cities are getting national attention this September.
According to data shared with Travel + Leisure today by Airbnb, Columbus, Ohio is the top trending destination for a long holiday weekend getaway. According to the data, which was based on dordle the number of nights booked for the Labor Day weekend, Tampa, Florida, was the most popular city, followed by North Kingstown, Rhode Island, and Raleigh, North Carolina. The eighth most visited city for the unofficial end of summer was Saint Petersburg, Florida, and the ninth most visited city was Reno, Nevada.
According to Airbnb, the number of people traveling alone will increase by more than 20% over the Labor Day weekend in 2021.
Vacationers prefer beach trips in the fall, according to Airbnb, with Ocean City, New Jersey (on the southern part of the Jersey Shore) ranking as the top destination.
Oxford, Mississippi, home to the University of Mississippi; Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home to LSU; Ann Arbor, Michigan, home to the University of Michigan; Lubbock, Texas, home to Texas Tech University; and Lexington, Kentucky, home to the University of Kentucky, made up the bulk of the most popular fall destinations.

Bodinnick, on the east bank of the Fowey, is home to the ferry, the Old Ferry Inn, Daphne Du Maurier’s former residence (now called “Ferryside”), and a handful of private residences. This inn has been catering to travelers making the five-minute crossing by ferry since around the year 1600.
Who It’s For Anyone who enjoys staying at inns that exude a sense of homey character while also providing all the modern conveniences will feel right at home at The Old Ferry Inn. Dog owners are welcome to bring their canine companions to the inn to meet Archie, the massive Newfoundland dog who has the soppiest attitude and the warmest heart, and is, unsurprisingly, a guest favorite; foodies will enjoy the fact that nothing on their plate was transported more than twenty miles.
The recent renovation was done tastefully and sympathetically. There are still original staircases that go in all different directions, but the eleven bedrooms, eight of which have views of the river, have been updated using reclaim and upcycling to create a uniform feel throughout.
All of the rooms, whether they’re king, twin, or junior suites, are unique and comfortable thanks to the Egyptian cotton, goose feather, and down bedding, and high-count fluffy towels and Bramley amenities in the attached bathroom. In addition to the TV, there are also convenient USB ports on both bedside plugs, making this an ideal room for the modern traveler.
In the basement of this inn is a wonderful pub, and it also happens to be the location where Paul, the inn’s proprietor, distills his own line of gins. If a tutored tasting session has left you feeling a little lightheaded, the front lounge, which offers a stunning panorama of Fowey, is the perfect place to relax and catch some Zs.
