Fun Labor Day Activities for the Whole Family

Here are some ideas for Labor Day activities that everyone in the family can enjoy!

Picnic at the Park

Labor Day is the perfect day to enjoy a picnic lunch. Pack up some sandwiches, snacks, and drinks for the whole family and head to your local park. Choose from our favorite parks in Aurora!

Fire up the Grill

What better way than to kick off Labor Day by firing up the grill? Cook some burgers, hot dogs, or your favorite grilled food. Don't forget the sides!

Take a Hike!

Get some fresh air and explore nature. If you don't have time for a long hike, even a short walk can be a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Choose from over 30 trails to go on your next hike.

Plan a Day Trip

If you have Monday off from work, take advantage of the extra day and plan a trip to somewhere you've always wanted to go. Labor Day is the perfect time for a mini-vacation. Gear up for a day of discovering Colorado with these trip-starter ideas.

Catch up on Work

Use Labor Day as an opportunity to catch up on some work around the house. Whether it's painting the fence or cleaning out the gutters, getting things done around the house can be satisfying (and it frees up your weekends for fun activities!).

Spend time Indoors

If you're looking for a more low-key activity, spend some time playing games or watching movies as a family. Labor Day is the perfect day to relax and enjoy time with your loved ones.

Try Kayaking or Paddleboarding

For a fun afternoon, head to a local lake and rent a paddleboard or kayak. The hours will fly by as you paddle around and take in the sights and sounds of the outdoors. You may even be able to spot some fun wildlife like turtles or aquatic birds. Rent your paddleboard or kayak here.

Break a Sweat

For a great day of riding about town, grab your bike and helmet. You can cycle on an old favorite trail or discover new places you haven't been before. This is a wonderful activity the whole family can enjoy together while getting some exercise. Check out our favorite trails for bike rides.

Go to a Museum

Stop by a museum to learn about history and science during the long weekend. Museums frequently offer tours or kid's programming, so ask around to see if your local museum does. Tickets may also be discounted for children or locals.

From all of us here at VisitAurora, have a happy and safe Labor Day!
