Quick Getaways for Labor Day

St. Louis Gateway Arch

Labor Day, which is fast approaching, presents an excellent opportunity to get away for a three-day weekend or even extend your trip beyond three days. Here are some great places to visit within driving distance of Cincinnati.

  • Chicago has something for everyone. Whether you want to stroll through museums, enjoy excellent shopping, sample unique food, or take in a view of the entire city, Chicago will deliver.
  • Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan is like stepping back in time. You’ll enjoy historic hotels and horse-drawn carriages (no cars are allowed on the island). Stay at The Grand Hotel to take in the full Mackinac Island experience.
  • If you’re looking for a fun, country music-filled getaway, then Nashville is the perfect place for you. Enjoy live music as you stroll from bar to bar or enjoy a show at the Grand Ole Opry.
  • Louisville is a great town for fun or to explore bourbon country. If you’re looking for fun, check out 4th Street Live or if you’re a fan of bourbon, travel along the Bourbon Trail.
  • Chicago

    St. Louis, known for its’ Gateaway Arch, also has some great things to do from City Museum to the St. Louis Zoo.

  • Finally, if you don’t want to drive far, consider staying in Cincinnati and enjoy the Labor Day Fireworks or go to one of the amusement parks in the area (Kings Island, The Beach, Coney Island). If neither of those ideas sound fun, go to one of the museums, cheer on the home team at the Reds game, enjoy Smale Park, or a free concert on Fountain Square.
