Everybody’s working for the weekend. And no time is that truer than on Labor Day weekend -- three days of prescribed nationwide idleness.
Making Labor Day plans shouldn’t be work. (Wouldn’t that be ironic?) So I’ve done the heavy lifting for you. Here’s a roundup of deals good for Labor Day weekend -- Aug. 31 to Sept. 2, 2013.
Miami Beach: Sense Beach House
Come to your senses, and spend the weekend lounging on the rooftop pool, or hit the beach, which is just steps away from this 18-room boutique hotel. Rates start at $199 per night. Go to sensebeachhouse.com and use code LDW.
Miami Beach: The Angler's Boutique Resort
If you’re angling for a good time, book a stay at this architectural gem. The all-suite resort is conveniently located near the action of South Beach, but its tucked-away setting makes for a relaxing getaway. Rates start at $199 per night, with a three-night minimum. Visit theanglersresort.com and use code LLD.
Jupiter: Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa
You’d have to be from another planet to not enjoy a stay at this popular East Coast retreat. Treat yourself to drinkable dark chocolate at the spa, go bar-hopping around town or just spend a day lounging in a hammock by the pool. Nightly rates start at $152 in advance or $190 anytime. Book at jupiterbeachresort.com.
Sarasota: Lido Beach Resort
Indulge in a decadent brunch, dip your toes into the warm Gulf of Mexico, and hit the beach in time to catch a spectacular sunset. Rates start at $139 per night. For reservations, visit lidobeachresort.com.
