Labor Day Weekend is a golden opportunity for one last summertime hoorah. If you’re short on ideas for how to spend your holiday weekend, we’ve got a few suggestions for affordable Labor Day activities.

  1. Go Camping
    Fresh air and incredible views are just some of the many reasons to pitch a tent for the weekend. Need a refresher course on setting up camp? A Little Campy has some great tips for planning a spur-of-the-moment camping trip.
  2. Drive The Coast
    Take an ocean-side drive and experience the beauty of America’s coasts firsthand. The scenic highways featured in Best Beach Road Trips For Bikers aren’t only reserved for motorcycles. If you’re traveling on four wheels, just roll down the windows for that same salty breeze against your skin.
  3. Go For A Swim
    There’s no question a day spent lounging by the pool is a day well spent. But if you’re feeling more adventurous, find the nearest swimming hole or hot spring to go for a dip.
  4. Go Outside
    Hiking, biking, floating–the great outdoors offers countless end-of-summer adventures (that are mostly free).
  5. Tour A Museum
    Have you seen everything your town has to offer? Museums can be hidden gems!
  6. Go To The Zoo
    Swing by your local zoo or aquarium and take a walk on the wild side. Many attractions offer extended holiday hours.
  7. Catch A Baseball Game
    Fill your holiday with hot dogs and home runs. Chances are, there’s a minor league team near you.
  8. Watch Fireworks
    The Fourth of July isn’t the only holiday featuring fireworks. Sparks fly in some cities, like Knoxville and Atlanta, on Labor Day, too.
  9. Staycation At Home
    Take a break from the outside world and turn your place into a spa.
  10. Fire Up The Grill
    Invite the neighbors over for a cookout. Any of these classic Labor Day recipes will be a crowd favorite.
  11. Drive-In To A Movie
    Cruise on over to the nearest drive-in theater and catch the latest summer blockbuster.
