An annual holiday with origins in the labour union movement, Labour Day has historically celebrated the achievements of workers and the eight-hour day movement (eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest). Today, it’s more commonly known as a coveted long weekend, perfect for BBQs, beach days, camping, and road trips. For our Canadian customers, the Labour Day weekend also marks the divide between the end of the summer and the start of the school year.

Here are a few ideas for how to ring in this staple of the summer:

Go to an Amusement Park

There’s nothing better than some good old fashioned carnival fun with family complete with mini donuts, cotton candy, hot dogs, carousels, log rides, and more. Go early to avoid the crowds and then stay late to make the most of the day. Don’t forget to check your Access Travel Rewards Membership first. We have some great deals on everything from Universal Studios to Lego Land Discovery Centre.

Have a Garage Sale

There’s something so fulfilling about de-junking, especially when it’s accompanied by some extra pocket change. Make Saturday clean out day, Sunday sale day, and Monday a treat yourself to something new with your hard-earned dollars day!

Get Wet

A long weekend is a perfect excuse to lay by the pool, run through the sprinkler, slide down the slip n’ slide or go to your local swimming hole or lake. Why not make a day out of it with a picnic or BBQ? Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Need a new bathing suit or inflatable boat? Access deals on swim gear and more with your Travel Rewards Membership.

Mix and Mingle

If staying close to home is more your speed, an open house, happy hour, or block party might be just the thing you need to cap off the weekend. Put out some refreshing summer drinks, crank up the BBQ, turn up the tunes, and spend quality time with family, friends, or neighbors.

Spend time in the great outdoors

Go to the park, head out on a hike, hit your local skate park, go bungee jumping, catch some fish, rent a bike, play Frisbee – the sky really is the limit when the great outdoors is calling. Spread the fun around by inviting family and friends to join in.

Take a last-minute road trip

Go with a destination in mind, or don’t! Be a tourist in your own city, check out a neighboring town, or venture out even further. Take your vehicle or even rent an RV for a change a pace.

Don’t forget to pack your Access Roadside Assistance membership with you! Give us a call before you leave to find out how you can save on accommodation, food, and beverage, and even car washes along the way with our Travel Rewards Membership.
