Labor Day, which is on Monday, Sept. 2, 2024, is a national holiday that was created to honor the social and economic gains Americans have made in the labor movement. What better way to celebrate high achievements than to kick back and relax? The end of summer is drawing near and school is starting. Take the extra day to put your feet up before Tuesday’s pile of papers starts stacking up the stress.

Food for Labor Day
If it hasn’t already happened, temperatures are going to start dropping soon, so it’s best to get the grilling in while you can. Make sure you know the best burger recipes, how to grill chicken and how to grill fish perfectly every time. If you want to get fancy, know the secrets to grilling the best-ever steak. Pair it with some delicious light beer or a fancy cocktail and have a great day.

If you don’t want to cook, celebrate your day off by hitting up one of America’s best seafood shacks before they close for the year or chow down on one of the best burgers in America.

Activities to celebrate Labor Day
Cookouts are a must for Labor Day. Invite friends and family and gather them around a picnic table for some dinner games.

If you want to get out of the house, enjoy the summer weather at the nearest drive-in movie theater. Bonfires, boating and hitting up some beginner trails for hiking are also great ways to enjoy the last of the warm summer sun. If you want to soak up the sun, take a day trip to one of those boardwalks that take you back in time, go to an underrated amusement park or pack up and head to one of the best beach towns in America.


Where to travel for Labor Day
A long weekend is the perfect excuse to enjoy one of the best weekend getaways in America. Plan a road trip to one of the best coastal towns in America or drive to the best summer destination in your state. No matter where you go, Labor Day weekend is the time to enjoy the sun, travel and maybe even experience one of the 101 things every American needs to do in a lifetime.
