Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer and Americans usually go out to celebrate. What to do on the last weekend of summer? We have suggestions below!

Check Out Labor Day NYC Parade 

In September, celebrate the largest Caribbean Carnival in Brooklyn and learn about Caribbean culture, history, arts, and traditions. The fun begins on the 2nd of September until the 6th and features a concert tour, youth fest, and live performances. Don’t ever miss the closing event on Labor day as it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Book a NY Hotel With Pool

Whether you’re celebrating with family members or friends, nothing can beat an afternoon at the pool where you get to see skyline views while holding your favorite cocktail. And of course, taking a dip in the swimming pool can be really refreshing. Margaritaville Resort Times Square has a heated outdoor pool excellent for a get-together. 

Enjoy the Sunset at Honorable William Wall

If having fun means enjoying a breathtaking sunset with the ocean as the backdrop, we recommend you try the floating Clubhouse of Manhattan Yacht Club called Willy Wall or Honorable William Wall. Apart from the sunset, you also get an amazing view of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. 

Book a Dinner Cruise

If you still can’t get enough of the Statue of Liberty then book a 3-course dinner on an all-glass boat around New York City. You can’t say no to enjoying a delicious meal while listening to live music and taking in breathtaking views of the city. If you can splurge, why not book a first-class VIP experience too and get to enjoy a delectable French wine?

Have Some Drinks at a Rooftop Bar

Cap off your summer by inviting your friends for cold drinks at one of the rooftop bars in New York City. Apart from the great views, you get to enjoy good company. You can talk about your crazy summer vacations or what you plan to do in the fall. Don’t forget to order your favorite cocktails drinks!

Join the Electric Zoo Music Festival

Do you like electronic dance music? Consider joining the annual Electric Zoo Music Festival, which is a 3-day music festival in New York. You need to book your tickets asap because they get sold out quickly. 

Go to the Beach

As they say, “All roads lead to the beach.” Since it’s the last day of summer, why not spend it at Jacob Riis Beach? You can work on your tan or swim all you want. There will be some festivities such as karaoke parties and the Beach Bazaar. It’ll be the perfect time to just enjoy the sun, eat some seafood and enjoy frozen cocktails. 

What Are Your Plans for Labor Day Weekend?

It’s New York — you’ll never run out of things to do in the city especially on Labor Day weekend. Do some of the activities mentioned above or just go out and have fun! Knowing New York City, we’re pretty certain that there’s always something to do!
