Labor Day is right around the corner and families will have one last weekend to do something together before school begins. This long weekend, people will hang out with their loved ones, getting in one final barbecue or pleasant afternoon together. If you want to enjoy your Labor Day to the fullest without spending a lot of money, then here are some activities to look into.
Travel to Another City
There’s still time for some last minute travel! Get your friends and family together and go somewhere nearby, without breaking the bank. There are a few travel websites out there providing great deals on flights, hotels, and transportation for this coming weekend. Check out sites like Tripsta, Alaska Airlines or Groupon Getaways to see what they have to offer.
Go to a Concert or Live Event
The weather’s still good enough to get outside and enjoy some live music or entertainment. If you want to see an artist you like or a performance you’ve been eager to see, then take a look at Stubhub or Ticketmaster to see what they have on sale for Labor Day Weekend. Why not go to a baseball game or soccer game, too? There’s something out there for everyone.
Go on a Hike
The three days over Labor Day Weekend is just enough time to hit the trail and build a campfire. There are plenty of places to hike, either near your hometown or in the next city or state over. Bring a Kuiu backpack, an amazing bag that you can get at a cheap price, and take everything you need for the long weekend. Just don’t forget the s’mores!
Eat a Fancy Brunch
Bottomless brunches seem to be a thing of the past once the school year starts. That’s why you need to get it all in now! If you’re thinking of swapping a typical BBQ for a classy brunch this Labor Day Weekend, then go ahead! It should be easy to find a restaurant near you that has a delectable menu for brunch. Take a look at Groupon or Foodpanda to see what’s going on in your area.
Do a Staycation
Why make yourself stressed out with planning things when you can just do a staycation? Check out which hotels are having deals for a night or two on Labor Day Weekend. After all, it is the end of the vacation season, and hotels need to make some good offers. See what rates are available at the Sheraton, Agoda, and the Hyatt hotels.
Go on a Shopping Spree
Labor Day Weekend means lots and lots of sales. Whether you’re getting items for back to school or you simply want to change up your wardrobe or your kitchen, now would be a great time. Head to Target for some school or household items or stores like H + M and Forever 21 to score some new clothing. Swing by Old Navy or check online at Once Upon a Tee to see what t-shirts you can save money on. Visit Aerosoles or Converse to buy shoes, too.
Labor Day Weekend is the closing of the summer season. Don’t let the cost of something stop you from having fun! Just spend wisely.
