Things To Do Labor Day Weekend In California

Labor Day is a day of celebrating laborers and all their hard work in society! Most people don’t know this, but Labor Day originates from the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement. We often work long hours week after week, and Labor Day is a reminder to take a break once in a while and enjoy the last moments of summer! We’ve come up with a few ideas for you to try next Labor Day weekend in California - 


Catalina Island

Just 22 miles from Los Angeles, hop on a ferry (or a helicopter) to Catalina Island for the weekend! You’ll feel like you went to Europe while lounging on day beds and drinking ice cold cocktails. Schedule a day of paddle boarding, snorkeling, golfing and more for a relaxing yet exciting weekend getaway! 


House Boating In Lake Shasta

There’s nothing that says 'off-the-grid' like living on a boat for a few days. Rent a houseboat with your friends or family at Lake Shasta for the perfect Labor Day celebration! 

Sonoma Wine Tasting

If you're sensing a magical day of wine tasting in your future, head to Sonoma for the weekend! With endless stunning fields and wineries, Sonoma is the perfect getaway to forget about work.

Palm Springs

Palm Springs is hot this time of year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a great time! Be prepared for an all-day pool day with a drink in hand. There’s also lots of golfing, hiking, biking, and more to keep the whole family entertained for the weekend!

Mammoth

Just 5 hours north of LA, Mammoth is the ultimate destination for all things summer! With bright blue lakes, endless hiking and biking, and superb restaurant options, Mammoth is the perfect place to take the whole family for Labor Day weekend.


Santa Barbara

There’s nothing quite like Santa Barbara! Beautiful Spanish architecture, high end boutiques, immaculate views, and delicious restaurants will have you wanting to extend your vacation a little while longer! You’ll feel relaxed and recharged for going into the new season.
