Leave it to the last minute. According to a recent Expedia.com® report, one-fifth of Labor Day travelers this year booked travel accommodations in July – late by most booking standards. In addition, many travelers, late bookers or not, are headed overseas for a last-weekend-of-summer getaway.

International hot spots for Labor Day include:

• London
• Barcelona
• Florence
• Paris
• Rome

"The favorable exchange rates we've seen this summer are a welcome relief for travelers looking to experience Europe," says Expedia Senior Editor Ingrid Belobradic. "Coupled with the already great promotions available, we're seeing opportunities for strong savings this Labor Day across international and domestic destinations."

5 Ways to Ready Your Hardscapes for Fall

September 3, 2015 2:48 am

When designing an outdoor space, start from the ground up.

According to the experts at Belgard® Hardscapes, homeowners can enjoy their patio, poolscape or driveway well into the fall season with a few key upgrades:

• Install a fireplace or fire pit as part of a backyard space to serve as a much-loved gathering spot and a complementing, permanent part of an overall outdoor living design.

• Explore large-format pavers for a natural stone look that mimics the appearance and texture of slate, flagstone or hand-chiseled rock.

• Take advantage of modular units like grill islands, brick ovens or wood boxes to create a customized outdoor space.

• Plant fall perennials that bloom during the season, including tall grasses, mums and certain varieties of hydrangeas.

• Define a space and add extra seating with built-in seat walls and add ottomans, throw pillows and stools to create an inviting outdoor setting.
