- Exploring of a National or State Park
- On a national holiday like Labor Day, it is only fitting that many people experience the beauty of one of America's landscapes by heading out to the nearest national or state park. Especially if you spend most days confined indoors at the office, the area parks can provide a relaxing scenic escape.
- Visiting a BBQ Haven
- Barbecuing is a popular Labor Day activity, but instead of sweating over the grill or oven, many "grill-miesters" trek out to one of the country's BBQ capitals. US News and World Report names Memphis as the top BBQ destination, with more than 80 BBQ restaurants in the city, most notably Corky's BBQ and Central BBQ. Kansas City is also known for the sweet taste of its sauces, while central Texas is said to have perfected the technique of smoking tender and flavorful brisket.
- Relaxing on the Beach
- Many people think of Labor Day as the unofficial start of fall, which brings cooler temperatures, more rain, and for many people, an end to lazy days at the beach. Many beach goers end the summer's beach days with a bang by taking one more trip to one of the coasts or an area lakeside beach.
No matter what your plans may be this weekend, as the college football games kick-off this Saturday and the area teams gear-up for another exciting season, our staff would like to wish each of you a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
