It seems like the entire country is itching to enjoy Labor Day in some fancy corner of the globe. Thankfully, travel website Kayak is showing you where they are headed.

If you ever wondered where people in your vicinity were thinking of vacationing, then you were made for the following map.

Aptly titled Labor Day: Mapped, the following graphic is a visual depiction of the top trending destination this holiday weekend according to Kayak searches.

Comparing the data to last year, Kayak found out that, for example, folks in California are yearning to discover Taipei, those in Texas are fond of Green Bay (though we presume no Cowboys fans are in this lot), and London is trending particularly well around the United States at the moment.

The blog post, linked above, has far more information – including the YoY percentage increase in searches by state to each destination. That data shows those in Utah, Texas, Pennsylvania, Georgia and California are all dealing with the effects of the travel bug at the moment.

Each location enjoys a 400 percent or more growth in searches over the period designated by Kayak.

As for takeaways, Kayak noticed a low pound and low Canadian dollar has many around the nation considering a trip to London or Canada before they meander off to work for the remainder of the year.

It might not be the kind of exotic locale you normally consider to put the final touches on a summer well enjoyed.

But a good deal is sometimes too enticing to pass up.
