As the summer months stretch into the early fall, many vacationers see Labor Day as one of the last opportunities to get outside before cooler temperatures and fall commitments kick into high gear. While the summer of 2020 found many families adjusting their traditional vacations, there is still some time left to take advantage of the great outdoors.
Even if you’re unable to visit a crowded theme park or beach, renting a yurt remains one of the safest and most enjoyable ways to venture into the outdoors in a sustainable, health-conscious way. And, in the early fall, many of our favorite Pacific Yurts offer excellent views of foliage and wildlife unique to this season of the year.
Whether you’re looking for a relaxing weekend getaway or an adventurous trip into the wilderness, these rentable Pacific Yurts are the perfect options for a Labor Day weekend to remember.
