Las Vegas for Labor Day Weekend

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Las Vegas offers such a great selection of things to do, people to see and places to go that it is no surprise that so many want to join in on the fun.  According to Las Vegas is the top travel destination in the country for Labor Day weekend.  It is the third consecutive year that Las Vegas has been the number one tourist destination for the Labor Day Holiday.

Las Vegas also came in at the number one spot for AAA bookings coming from Southern Californians. says that Las Vegas bookings are up ten percent over 2009. Both airfare and room rates are higher than they were last year, so to see an increase is encouraging. Room rates are up five percent over last year, but down 23 percent from 2008.  The increase is especially good news in light of the fact that we have 7,500 more rooms than we did last year at this time. The projections are that there will be more people here but they will spend a little less than in previous years. But given the state of the economy, to be able to fill the rooms is still a win for Las Vegas.
