With Memorial Day and Independence Day already behind us, there’s one long holiday weekend left to take advantage of this summer. Whether you have yet to escape this season -- or you’d like to squeeze in another weekend getaway before the weather cools down -- Labor Day is looming and the perfect time to hit the road. But that’s less than two weeks away, you might be thinking. Here to make the the planning and booking process easier is the brand-new Weekender tool from our sister site, Airfarewatchdog.

Dedicated to finding last-minute weekend deals -- including flights, hotels, or both -- this handy, recently launched resource pulls together two- to four-day trips departing on Thursday or Friday and returning on Sunday or Monday. Not sure where to go? No problem. Simply select “anywhere” as your final destination and you’ll be presented with a list of popular picks. If you prefer not to cast a wide net, narrow your search and choose a specific route. Either way, you’ll often be given deals that airlines might not have otherwise advertised during their sales. Currently, the offerings only include departures from major U.S. and Canadian cities for up to a month in advance, though the site plans to eventually extend this to up to six months. 

Oh, and if you can’t sneak away for Labor Day, there’s always Columbus Day, and every other weekend before and after that.
