PHOENIX - Valley residents are taking to the road this holiday weekend and it appears rising gas prices are slowing them down.

TripAdvisor released the results of its Labor Day and fall travel survey of more than 1,400 U.S. respondents.

"Twenty-seven percent are planning to travel this Labor Day weekend, up from 22 percent who traveled for the holiday last year, 64 percent expect to drive, and 31 percent plan to fly," Lesley Carlin, Travel Expert from TripAdvisor said.

For Phoenix-area residents yet to make their Labor Day travel plans, TripAdvisor has identified five great Labor Day getaways for Phoenix travelers within 200 miles.

The top results based on recently top searched travel spots by Phoenix area locals on TripAdvisor.com:

1. Sedona, AZ
2. Flagstaff, AZ
3. Tucson, AZ
4. Prescott, AZ
5. Puerto Penasco in Mexico
