5 Last Minute Labor Day Weekend Ideas

Do us a favor right now and pat yourself on the back for all your hard work and dedication! You’re a champion and you deserve to take some time for yourself – and luckily the perfect occasion is fast approaching. Labor Day is such a glorious holiday because it honors the hard working individuals that help make America such an amazing country to live in. Labor day is all about relaxation, celebration, and fun. Now there’s probably a lot of you that have already planned a fabulous and elaborate weekend getaway to zen out. But for those of us who don’t have plans yet, we’re giving you some easy and inexpensive suggestions to make the most out of your Labor Day weekend!

  1. Take a road trip!
    There’s something about hitting the open road and exploring unknown territories that isn’t only relaxing, but adventurerous and exciting. Once the holidays roll around and the cold weather starts to set in, the appeal of a road trip lessens. Driving up the coast to a visit a beautiful beach or heading out into the desert to watch the stars is the perfect easy escape from your busy life. Take your bestie or lover, create the road trip perfect playlist and just go!
  2. Have a BBQ and invite your closest friends.
    Nothing says Labor Day weekend fun like a big BBQ! Do it at a local beach park, in your back yard or preferably at a friends house with a pool. Themed parties are always fun so make it interesting and tell everyone they must come dressed in all white! Make sure to get a couple pool floats and lots of rosé. You’ll have the cutest party pics ever.
  3. Go on a nature hike.
    This may sound boring to some, but hiking in nature can be one of the greatest stress relievers ever. Breathing in the fresh air and being surrounded by trees and beauty is honestly just good for the soul.
  4. Plan a beach day.
    This is a must during your Labor Day weekend. I’m not just talking about an average beach day, I’m talking real preparation. Invite all your friends, bring music (major key), beach blankets, towels, a picnic basket, activities like footballs and frisbees, and a Polaroid camera!
  5. Explore your city.
    As our work-weeks tend to keep us busy bees it’s easy to just stay home during down time and veg out on the couch. This is totally understandable, but Labor Day weekend is an opportunity to step outside the box and check out some things you wouldn’t usually have time for. I love going to art galleries. What’s the art scene like in your city? Have you ever explored it? What about an interesting museum or landmark you’ve never visited. You will not only feel culturally enriched afterward, but you’ll feel more in touch with your city too.Shop Labor Day Essentials
