End of Summer & Labor Day Ideas

Summer is winding down as September looms around the corner, but don't feel as if there is no time left for the festive and leisurely pace of summer. The fun is just beginning!

End of Summer & Labor Day Picnic Ideas
Cool mornings and evenings provide the best times to head outdoors to your favorite picnicking spots. Whether you're heading out for a walk on the beach, or going hiking, canoeing, or camping you're going to want to bring plenty of delicious food and drinks for your trip.

Picnic Backpacks Make Picnics Simple
Picnic Backpacks make life so much simpler. They're hands-free, durable, comfortable and equipped with a cutting board, salt & pepper shakers and all the glasses, plates, utensils, linens and insulated space you need for an exciting picnic adventure! The end of summer means that warm, sunny summer days are limited, so get outside and enjoy them while you can! Perfect for any types of picnics, picnic backpacks are so efficient and convenient to just grab 'n go! They are great alternatives to traditional picnic baskets and make great gifts for relatives, newlyweds, birthdays and anniversaries. Here are a few fun ideas that you don't want to miss out on before summer is over, and remember that picnic backpacks are effortlessly trendy and make adventures a lot easier!

Dancin' in the Moonlight...
We highly recommend a moonlight picnic during these warm summer nights. Choose your favorite outdoor spot away from a lot of city lights and see infinite amounts of stars while getting cozy with your loved one, or pointing out shooting stars to your kids. Bring along a picnic blanket, folding picnic table or portable chairs, and enjoy the cool evening getting lost in the magnificence of our mystical universe. Enjoy playing/listening to some guitar, or bring along an iPod and relax while munching on some wine and cheese. If you have more of a sweet tooth, find a spot you can have a campfire and roast some marshmallows! Camp out in your backyard or head to a local state or national park and see what magic will transpire as you enjoy a star-filled night!

With the hot days of summer hitting their peaks, the days are more beautiful than ever to get out and enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. Have you spent enough time outside in nature this summer to last you through the cold winter months?

Tandem Bikes
Have you ever tried tandem bicycling? Imagine how much fun you would have running around in such a unique and fun way! Not to mention all the attention you'd get from people who wish they could join you as you head out for an adventurous picnic!

Outdoor Concerts
Have you hit up an outdoor concert in your city or community? You'll love the music, the people, the ambiance and most of all you'll be supporting your community as you enjoy a social picnic with your loved ones!

History in the Making...
Have you visited a local historical site? Learn more about your country's history and make a road trip out of your adventure. Stop at various places and see what local communities are promoting because things happening today are what makes history! If you have a motorcycle, it would be a great way to see the sights and enjoy a cool ride!

Don't forget that Labor Day Weekend marks the transition into the beginning of
fall (though it may take awhile for temperatures to "fall") and also kicks of College Football! Woohoo, Tailgating time!

Are you ready for tailgating this fall?
