Labor Day Weekend is nearly upon us, which we hope means more than a lot of car traffic for you. Though some people plan way out in advance for the weekend, here are some of our last-minute recommendations on the things you may want to be doing this Labor Day Weekend.
This one may seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people decide not to go camping for Labor Day. Camping helps rejuvenate the mind and body, and we're big fans of it here. It may be worth trying a less crowded area where you can enjoy some open space and hopefully some beautiful weather!
If you live near or are planning on traveling in an area where there's water, be sure to bring a fishing pole (and a license)! While there's proven studies showing how fishing can help relieve stress, it's also a very enjoyable activity to share with a friend or family member. Besides, catching a fish you're able to keep makes for a great meal as well.
3. Paddleboarding and/or Canoeing
If you're not necessarily into fishing but still love the water, consider paddleboarding or canoeing for a great Labor Day Weekend activity. Both are extremely healthy activities and can give you a completely different perspective of the surrounding area. Be sure to wear a life jacket though, that's important!
If you're lucky enough to live near a place where you can go hiking, we highly encourage it this weekend. Hiking is by far one of our most enjoyable activities. Though there are many different elevations across the country, we encourage anyone who is within distance of a small hill or large mountain to get up there, explore the unknown and feel accomplished.
5. Gold Panning
What kind of prospectors would we be if we didn't mention gold panning! Gold panning has been proven to possibly make you rich, but absolutely guarantee a fun time by yourself, with friends or family. Check out the best gold panning kit here.
No matter what you do this weekend, we hope it's an enjoyable one!
