We know all the best places and the coolest cities across the country, so keep reading for a list of top places to visit for this Labor Day weekend getaways. We’ve tried to throw in a good selection for all ages!
New York City, exciting things to do
New York City is packed with a ton of exciting things to do and it is home to some of the best urban parks in the world. Everyone knows about NY’s crown jewel, Central Park, but there are countless others located around the five boroughs that are much less crowded. If you’re looking to have a pleasant, low-key day off, why not grab a basket, a blanket, and a few close friends, and make your way to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, a 585-acre area filled with winding paths and enough tree coverage to make you forget that you’re in one of the busiest cities in the world. And if you don’t mind to navigate thru the crowds, why not take a sightseeing tour in the city. You will be glad you did. In addition to that, you can take a tour to the famous Niagara Falls and unwind with family and friends. No need to worry about driving for eight hours. Just sit back and relax and enjoy the lovely scenery.
Boston, nice weather and great city skyline
Summer in Boston is unique and full of surprises. The weather in summer is perfect to get a nice caramel tan and enjoy a lazy day by the beach. Some days can be hotter than others and the heat could be tough at times. But by the time Labor Day rolls around, the city is starting to show its first signs of autumn, with a cool breeze blowing in from the harbor. Speaking of, Boston Harbor isn’t just a great place to dump tea; on any given day, you can board a ship that will take you out for a leisurely cruise among the many islands and channels of the harbor. The Spirit of Boston is one such boat. For 2 hours, you will enjoy a buffet-style meal, a live DJ, and a dance party, all set against the backdrop of Boston’s beautiful skyline. Then, once you’re done with that, head towards the famous North End (the city’s historic Italian neighborhood). Just be sure to head back to Columbus Park once it gets dark for the fireworks display!
Washington, D.C., beautiful city rich in history
Back in colonial times, Philadelphia was the capital of the US, but in 1791, Washington, D.C. was founded to serve as the headquarters of the federal government. Along with its political history, Washington has a rich musical community. The Labor Day Capitol Concert is held each year at the National Symphony Orchestra to celebrate their new season. Explore and learn about the rich history of this beautiful city. Don’t forget to wave at the White House when passing by in case you see someone is looking out of the window.
Las Vegas, what happens in…
Labor Day is a holiday meant to commemorate the American workforce by providing them with a much-needed day off. But why not “work it” in another way? We’re talking about killing it on the dance floor in Las Vegas style. The best Deejays in the planet love to throw the biggest parties in Vegas for people to have a good time. Not only Deejays love Vegas but many of the biggest stars in the entertainment industry have made Vegas their home of residence or at least until their contract is due. Relax by the pool of any hotel or try your luck at one of the world-renowned casinos on Las Vegas strip. If you are not into the party scene so much, then it is a great opportunity to get away to the beautiful Grand Canyon. You could take a day trip to the Grand Canyon to escape the noise and the crowds and appreciate nature as its best. That sounds too good to miss!
San Francisco, mega constructions
Any trip to San Francisco would be incomplete without a cruise on the bay, where you’ll get to see the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge, world-famous Alcatraz Island, and the city’s stunning skyline. But you know what makes any cruise better? Booze (if you’re 21+, of course). Pick your poison: you can take a Labor Day Beer Lunch Cruise, which includes a delicious buffet and free drinks; or a Champagne & Mimosa Cruise, which doesn’t offer any food, but is still a nice way to start a weekend morning.
But why wait until Labor Day Weekend? August 25th is the anniversary of the National Parks Service, and to celebrate, why not take an affordable short trip to Lake Tahoe or any other national many national parks nearby.
