Top holiday ideas for Labor Day 2021


Destin, August 9, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Labor Day marks the end of summer. It’s the holiday that pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers, but it’s often the least-traveled vacation of the year, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA). As the nation returns from the pandemic, American workers are once again traveling to outdoor destinations including beaches, mountains, and state parks. For those considering a Labor Day beach vacation, Newman-Dailey Resort Properties, a leading vacation rental company in Destin, Florida, offers discounted rental rates as well as free activities and discounts on area attractions. The Destin Vacation Rentals can be combined with a variety of activities to create a personalized Labor Day vacation depending on each traveler’s interests.

“Our guests have told us they don’t want summer to end and that a Labor Day beach vacation is a timeless tradition,” said Jeanne Dailey, Founder and CEO of Newman-Dailey. “In fact, for the past 36 years of welcoming families to the beach, our team has narrowed down to the most popular Labor Day vacation activities in the Destin area.”

Green travelers looking for a green, Labor Day vacation will delight in the offerings of Scenic Highway 30-A, which includes three state parks and a state forest. One of the best places to stay is Sanctuary at Redfish. The resort is located on Highway 30-A and overlooks a nature reserve and a rare coastal dune lake. With eco-friendly recreation options within the coastal dune lake, on the beach, as well as biking the 30-A-paved bike path and hiking in nearby Grayton Beach State Park, the resort is a nature lover’s paradise. Guests can reduce the travelers’ footprint by performing a coastal cleanup along the beaches and helping to fill holes along the beach to preserve the sea turtle nesting area. Guests can also partner with the 30A Sea Life Discovery Center or participate in the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance’s OYSTER clam recycling program by eating oysters at participating Destin restaurants.
