5 Labor Day Activities for the Family

Labor day

Labor Day is the unofficial end to the summer. Even though there’s still technically a few more weeks left of the season, Labor Day marks the end of vacation time and the start of school. Before the summer totally gets away from you, use this last hurrah to get outside and try some of these late-summer activities!

Go to the Pool

In most communities, Labor Day is the last day that the public pool is open. Take advantage of the warm weather and hit the pool one more time. Make a day of it and relax by the water, exercise as you swim laps or watch as the kids play in the cool water all day.

Have a Picnic

If a packed party or big barbeque aren’t for you, scale things down and have a family holiday picnic. Pack a lunch of fresh late summer veggies, sandwiches, fruit and plenty of water (it is still hot outside) and head to the park. Spread a blanket and enjoy the sunshine as the you relax (and don’t have to work) on Labor Day.

Watch a Parade

Many cities and communities across the U.S. have Labor Day parades to mark the holiday. Visit your local area’s website and check out community bulletins for a place and time.

Hike in the Woods

What better way to relax and get away from the daily grind of your job than taking some time to experience nature? Go for a leisurely walk in the woods or in a local park with your family.

Ride a Bike

There’s no sitting in rush hour traffic today! Instead, slow things down and go for a bike ride with your friends, your spouse or the whole family.
