It’s almost Labor Day, but summer isn’t over yet! There’s still time to feel the sand between your toes! But where do you go with such little time to plan?
Don’t fret: we’ve done the research for you. Here are some of our favorite beach destinations for Labor Day weekend!
At the Southeast tip of Cape Cod, Chatham is a quaint town on the Atlantic. Harding Beach is a great choice for families, and the Monomoy Wildlife Refuge can help you get your nature fix before the summer ends. The climate is often mild this time of year, floating around seventy degrees in September. For the family wanting to make the beach trip educational, you can stop by Chatham Lighthouse to see the historic site. It was established in 1808 by Thomas Jefferson and has played an important role on the highly trafficked coast. Chatham is also a COVID-safe option: they have several policies in place to help reduce the spread and keep its visitors safe. In total, Chatham can be a place to make some memories this Labor Day.
La Jolla Cove, California
La Jolla Cove is a particularly good choice when you want the beach trip to be filled with wildlife. Many visitors have acclaimed that the snorkel tours are a blast -- they boast about seeing many leopard sharks up close! After an afternoon of swimming with the sharks stop by Bobboi’s for some Natural Gelato. They even have a dairy-free option! Before you plan your trip, check out all of the recommendations and cheats provided by a resident of La Jolla Cove (you’ll love watching the sun-bathing sea lions).
Newport, Rhode Island
In addition to its bright beaches, Newport is also home to a wealth of mansions. Such lineage comes with its age: the town was first founded in 1639 and has since been the home of many authors, architects, and even presidents. Many of the mansions are open to tours, being mindful of COVID, of course. Holding famous golf courses, walking trails, and most importantly beaches, Newport is a fantastic choice for a relaxing Labor Day getaway.
Why not enjoy the holiday plans by the sea? Take the BBQ to the beach and celebrate the year’s hard work with the family.
