Labor Day is commonly associated with ‘back-to-school’ and football season, but, did you know that it’s been around for over 100 years? President Grover Cleveland originally recognized Labor Day in 1894, after the national railroad debacle involving the Pullman Strike.

Since then, the day has been about celebrating the average American worker. Labor Day creates a three-day weekend at the end of summer, which is why it has developed into the perfect weekend to end the season with a bang!

Some celebrate Labor Day with a barbecue, or maybe even a beach day. The best way to celebrate Labor Day though is, without a doubt, a killer camping trip; get the most out of your three-day weekend.

A Place to Stay for Labor Day

This makes Labor Day one of the most popular camping weekends of the year. This means if you’re planning a Labor Day trip, even as far as fall of 2014 or 2015, you’ll want to book early. Not only does booking early help secure a place during this busy season, but you also get to pick from the best options, instead of only what’s left.

Labor Day Food

A great theme is America, think July 4th or Memorial Day cookouts. Hot Dogs, burgers, and homemade pastas are perfect. You can even find some awesome ideas on Pinterest!
