Crystal Coast Expects Big Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer and it looks like a lot of folks will head out to the Crystal Coast for some R&R.

We checked in with a couple of hotels in Beaufort on Thursday, and both the Beaufort Inn and Inlet Inn are pretty much booked for the weekend.

However, Beaufort Realty says they have some rental homes available. Anna Grandy says now is the time to start taking advantage of the deals.

"The fall is the Crystal Coast's best kept secret," says Grandy. "The pricing is ideal. People are ready to bargain, negotiate, so you can really scoop up a great deal. It's the perfect time of year. The weather is absolutely gorgeous."

If you want to get away for even just a night this weekend, many of Beaufort's hotels have a few rooms available, including the DoubleTree in Atlantic Beach.

Keep in mind, it's also the last weekend that lifeguards will be present at Atlantic Beach.
