6 ideas to savor the last of the summer during Labor Day weekend

For many Labor Day marks summer coming to a close. With the kids returning to school and some adults returning to offices, we all want to make the most of the Labor Day weekend before Fall arrives. If you want to savor the last official summer weekend, why not try these ideas?

Camp in your back yard

If you’ve tried to make a campsite or KOA reservation for the Labor Day weekend, you may have experienced high demand and not many spaces available.  When the campsites are full, why not try camping in the back yard?  You can still tell ghost stories at night and make ‘smores on a chiminea.  Better still, you can beat a hasty retreat into the comfort of your own home if the weather turns stormy

Drive to a picnic location

There’s nothing that says summer like eating some of your favorite food in a beautiful outdoor setting.  Bring the whole family and head to a picnic area that you love with some tasty treats packed in the trunk of your car.  Be sure to add your Travall Divider, so your dog doesn’t gobble your treats before you get to your picnic destination.

Turn your driveway into a car wash

It’s your pride and joy, so why not give your car that extra attention with a really deep cleanse – inside and out? One of our recent blog posts details how to do just that – read more here.

Be a tourist in your home town

The recent pandemic has limited travel opportunities for many of us.  So why not visit tourist attractions in your own area instead?  Many museums have now re-opened with social distancing and additional hygiene measures in place. Explore what’s available near you.

Go for a hike

When Fall starts to roll in and homework commitments start to increase, it becomes more difficult for families to get out on a long hike together.  Embrace these last snippets of better weather and head out for a hike on a local trail.  Hike It Baby is a great source of information on hiking for families with young children.

Capture the summer memories

The summer of 2020 has been memorable for us all in so many different ways.  Why not capture some of the brighter elements of that time for posterity? Creating a photo album or scrap book together is a fun family project and allows you to reflect on all you’ve experienced together.
