What is the most interesting festival you’ve ever attended? Looking for something fun to do over the Labor Day weekend? Then we surely have an idea for you: the Burning Man Festival! In 2010, the festival takes place between August 30 and September 6.
The official website doesn’t help much with how to get to Burning Man stating that it’s your own responsibility to actually get there – and yes, it takes place right in the middle of the desert.
The closest airport to the site of the festival is Reno – 130 miles away – so start looking for cheap airfare to Reno . Chances are you’ll be able to find some good last minute deals. Otherwise, you’ll be racking up from $335 per person for a round trip from Los Angeles. And by the way, when you book the flight, also consider booking the airport parking at LAX to save time and money.
Once you get to Reno, make sure to rent a car to get to the festival site but remember that you cannot use any vehicle to get around the festival site. Consider booking accommodation in Reno before you leave. It might be a bit late but you can find rooms starting at $68 per night (even during a weekend night). Or you can book a bed in a hostel dorm for prices starting at $32 per night.
