You know what’s just around the corner? Our residents’ first holiday at Shores! That’s right, summer is winding down and Labor Day weekend starts this Friday, August 31! For the Shores community, that’s pretty exciting stuff because we’ll be smack dab in the middle of the best Labor Day celebration spots. If you’re new to Shores and wondering how you should ring in the holiday, here are a few long-weekend ideas to help you make the most of your Labor Day plans (without having to get in your car!).
1. Celebrate at Shores
You live in a community with just about everything at your fingertips, so why not take a mini-vacay right at home! Invite some friends over and hang out by the pool, soak in a Jacuzzi, barbecue some dinner and end the evening with cocktails on the Sky Terrace. Now that’s some worthwhile long-weekend activity.
2. Walk to Mother’s Beach
Just because Summer 2013 is officially over doesn’t mean you can’t hang out by the ocean. Spend the weekend soaking up the rays, kayaking or picnicking with friends. When you live at Shores, the only effort you need to expend on a Labor Day weekend is strolling across the street to Mother’s Beach.
3. Bike to the Park
Here’s a Labor Day idea: hop on your bike and pedal up to a park for the day. If you go to Yvonne B. Burke Park (about 1.7 miles), you can stop at Tony P’s for carryout and then have a picnic party or head a little farther to Burton W. Chace Park (about 2.1 miles away) and barbecue up some lunch. You can also feel free to bring your pooches along to either park (just keep them on their leashes) and let them enjoy the long weekend, too.
4. Attend a Yacht Party
Head up to the Fantasea One Yacht at 13509 Fiji Way and get in on the legendary Labor Day Yacht Party. Advanced tickets for Monday, September 2 are sold out, but you can still get tickets at the gate. Check in for ticketholders is at 2 pm, so get there early to secure your spot on the yacht!
5. Catch a Fisherman’s Village Concert
Another Marina-exclusive Labor Day weekend option is to catch the concerts at Fisherman’s Village. The venue is only 2.5 miles away so Shores residents can easily bike or walk to this oceanside spot for the Sullivan & Hall R&B band on Sunday and Susie Hansen’s Latin Jazz band on Monday.
