What To Do on Labor Day

Hit up the flatirons or find a trail near you and take in a long hike or some trail running.

With temperatures cooling, there’s only a handful of good pool days left, savor the cool water and rays and chill by the pool.

Just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean you can’t be active. Get some friends together for a morning jog or bike ride through your neighborhood.

Pack up some of the great food you made and head to a park where you can eat and play fun games like croquet, basketball and maybe volleyball or badminton.


Whatever you do this Labor day, make sure you enjoy yourself and remember you can always have fun while staying healthy!
