Good Morning! We hope everyone is enjoying the warm, relaxing days of summer. While we don’t like to wish away the season, Labor Day Weekend in NJ will be here before you know it and it’s important to be prepared. As the last, long weekend in summer, the holiday may be your last opportunity to plan a family vacation. If you are like many, you will be hitting the road and traveling to your destination. In this week’s blog post we wanted to provide a useful guide that you can easily reference during your Labor Day weekend adventure in NJ and beyond. So, don’t start pulling your hair out yet! Your Labor Day weekend visit in NJ can be stress-free if you keep these Labor Day travel tips in mind.
Travel Tip #1 for your Labor Day Weekend trip: Show your car some TLC. No one wants to be stuck on the side of the road, especially if you are trying to make it to your dinner reservation on Friday night. Check your engine, radiator, fluids and tires but always plan for an emergency, just in case. Does your car have an emergency and first aid kit? It should! You never know what could happen on those long drives.
Traveling with kids? Travel Tip #2 will come in handy. Pack a few snacks and a few word search puzzle books. They’ll have so much fun competing against their siblings that the words “Are we there yet?” won’t even cross their mind! But, practice safety first and make sure the driver is not distracting,
Travel Tip #3: Leave early! Yes, if you are planning on taking the highways, you’ll be glad you left early. The best time is to plan on leaving early Saturday morning or before 4pm on Friday. Check the roads before you head out to make sure there are no road repairs or scheduled lane changes.
Travel Tip #4: Make a music playlist for your car. If traveling out of state, you may not be familiar with the local radio stations. Your favorite song can be the perfect way to relax you, especially while sitting in traffic!
Travel Tip #5: Find the best hotel deals in your area. If planning to stay in NJ, we welcome you to visit our hotel offers page. It’s important to save money and we are proud to offer guests the best possible rates in our area.
