Day at the Beach
In most places, visiting the beach is free. Try to get to the beach early to find a free parking spot, and avoid traffic. Bring a picnic, and some beach umbrellas with you to enjoy the day regardless of the weather. While many beaches don’t allow alcohol consumption, there are still plenty that do. Look up your local beach laws before you bring the booze. Pack balls and games for some fun outdoor activities. If your beach allows bonfires, don’t forget the marshmallows and chocolate for s’mores.
Throwing a barbeque for friends and family can be fun, but it can also get expensive. Between the food, alcohol, dinnerware, etc. – you can end up spending hundreds on a party in your backyard. Cut the cost of throwing a Labor Day 2017 party in your home by making it a potluck, instead of a BBQ. By having each guest bring a dish, dessert or beverage – everyone will share in the cost of the event, reducing what you’ll owe overall.
Visit a National Park
Camping is an inexpensive way to getaway. Tickets to national parks are relatively inexpensive, starting at $15 per person. If you plan on parking a vehicle, entrance costs $30 for Yellowstone National Park. If you already have camping equipment, you’re set for an affordable vacation at a beautiful natural location with plenty of outdoor activities and things to see.
Kayaking for the day can cost as little as $10 an hour if renting a kayak. Plenty of state beaches and lakes offer kayak rentals. There’s nothing more peaceful then getting out on the water. Temperatures are often higher during Labor Day, so a water activity is a great way to keep cool, while getting in a workout. Go on an adventure, and explore new areas by kayak.
September is a great time to travel, with many children going back to school, and many destinations entering their slow season. U.S. News suggests locations like Washington D.C., Palm Beach, London and Chicago for cheap travel during Labor Day. Want to getaway this Labor Day, but don’t have the cash?

Baseball is as American as it comes. Celebrate the holiday by catching a ball game at your local stadium. Baseball games tend to be inexpensive, depending upon where you sit. By cheaper seats, and go as a big group – or spring for better seats to see your favorite player hit a home run.
