Labor Day Weekend is upon us. As the unofficial end of the season, it’s a popular time for people to want to get away from it all. But, because this year is, well, a little different, travelers are looking for something extra special for their end of summer adventures.

According to Airbnb’s new data, travelers are seeking out more remote locations for Labor Day Weekend. The most popular search remains the “staycation” with people searching nearby stays within 300 miles from home. However, the rental giant notes that searches for international destinations are on the rise, reflecting travelers' wanderlust.

And, Airbnb notes, people are looking for truly unique stays, like cabins and tiny homes, to make their vacations a little more epic. Airbnb reports “shepherd’s huts” have nearly doubled in inclusions in July compared to last year. Searches for “barns” are up 60%, “cabins” are up 40%, and “cottages” are up 30%.
