"With so many getting away for the holiday, Labor Day is also an excellent time to consider hosting to earn extra income," said Haven Thorn, a spokesperson for Airbnb said in a release. "In fact, in 2021, Sept. 4 was the date with the largest number of check-ins at U.S. destinations."
The Triangle area has some unique Airbnbs that are still open for the weekend. Cohen said that most people don't book their trip on Airbnb until a week beforehand, so there's still time to book.
