Ah, Labor Day is almost here, which means it is time for one last hoorah for the summer season. There's still time to book a weekend getaway. We’ve listed a few places that have several exciting events happening and beautiful places to see.  

Houston to San Francisco, From $178
Available days for departure: Tuesday, September 1 to Sunday, September 6

If you didn’t get to see lovely San Francisco this summer, this weekend is the perfect opportunity. Rent a bike and ride through many different neighborhoods, stopping at the Golden Gate Bridge along the way, take a ferry to Alcatraz for an audio tour of the historic island, and drive to the Twin Peaks for an amazing view.

Houston to New York City, From $360.20
Outbound Flight: Friday, September 4 | Inbound Flight: Monday, September 7

What’s better than a weekend in New York City? Get ready to party at the Electric Zoo festival and West Indian-American Day carnival during the day and end the night at one of the top rooftop bars, including Bar 13 and Berry Park.  If you’re looking to wind down by the water, head to Fort Tilden Beach in the city or Jacob Riis Park beach just outside it.

Houston to Seattle, From $324
Available days for departure: Monday, August 31 to Sunday, September 6

Seattle has sights galore, from the Space Needle observation tower and Sky View Observatory, where you can get a panoramic view of the city, to the Seattle Central Public Library, which received a national award for its architecture in 2005, and the University of Washington. Be prepared to snap pictures everywhere you go—you won’t want to forget these beautiful sights.
