Columbus Day is one of those holidays that some people get to take off from work, but most people still have to punch in on the time clock. So if you are one of the lucky ones who has a 3 day weekend, the Sunday night before Columbus Day has special pricing. The fall colors will be near peak, so an October getaway on a long weekend during this time frame is ideal for relaxing and viewing the fall foliage.
Government and bank employees plus postal workers and educators are the general pool of laborers who typically get a paid holiday on the second Monday in October. In Michigan, Columbus Day honors the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus who was the first to successfully sail and map a route across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe in 1492. Hawaiians celebrate the discovery of their state by the Polynesians on this date and call it Discovery Day. Other states may commemorate Indigenous People on this day or do not recognize the holiday at all. In the states that do recognize the era of discovery, a holiday is celebrated to honor exploration.
