South Padre

South Padre Island is a great bet for Labor Day weekend. Rent a beach house, grill out or order in.Take a dolphin watching cruise to see these magnificent creatures in their habitat, and check out the Laguna Atascosa Wildlife habitat to see native animals like the bobcat. South Padre is an easy drive from most major cities in Texas.


Have fun on amusement park style rides, or eat somewhere tourist-y like Bubba Gump just for the heck of it. Enjoy roller coasters at Moody Gardens, have a tour and a taste at Galveston Brewing Co., and bring in the night at Tremont rooftop bar. 

San Antonio

Another road trip worthy destination for a fun Labor Day weekend is San Antonio’s River Walk. Visit the Alamo for a walk through Texas history, and pop into museums along the way that are filled with hidden gems, like a recreation of Bonnie and Clyde’s car. 


For a more relaxing Labor Day weekend option in Austin, check out the Lake Austin Spa Resort. Or you can save a buck by enjoying the day at Lake Lady Bird and going for a massage at a spa in South Congress, where you’ll find plenty of shops, restaurants, and more options for passing the time.
