Soak Up the Last Days of Summer this Labor Day Weekend
Labor Day is upon us, and many see it as the unofficial end of summer. That’s because the three-day holiday weekend marks the end of the summer season, while many fall activities like school and sports begin.
Considered summer vacation’s last hurrah, Labor Day weekend allows families to get out and soak up some last-minute summer fun. Make the most of this long weekend with some exciting activities below.

Go for a Bike Ride
If you didn’t get a chance to ride a bike this summer, now is the time to hit the trails. The American River Trail (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail) is a popular bike trail.
The 32-mile-long trail runs from Jibboom Street in Discovery Park to Beal’s Point near Folsom Lake and is used by about 5 million people every year. If you don’t have bicycles for the entire family, you can rent some at local bike companies that offer rentals.
