Come for the fun, stay for the withering heat just released a list of its top 50 Labor Day destinations, based on booking requests through its site. Vegas tops the list, followed by Chicago, NYC, and other predictable tourist destinations. Nestled in between Vancouver and San Diego at #17 is our very own Austin, TX.

Sprinting between our air conditioned bars and restaurants is now officially a bigger draw than chilling in Tahoe (#30) or clubbing in South Beach (#45). Austin has even supplanted the Riverwalk (#31) as a tourist destination, but that’s a gimme unless Dick’s Last Resort is the jewel in your nightlife crown.
