Things to do in Minnesota for Labor Day Weekend
Labor Day weekend is a much appreciated three-day weekend for most people but it also represents the end of summer and the season coming to a close. This weekend is usually a great way to celebrate one last party before fall will begin. Minnesota residents spend this time closing up their cabins and putting the boats away, but locals should really enjoy summer activities while they are still around. Here are some great options for Labor Day Weekend in Minnesota this year.
Island View Resort
249 Scenic Dr
Knife River, MN
For a weekend spent in a cabin by the water, head to the Island View Resort. Overlooking Lake Superior, Island View Resort is a beautiful place to go for a great time in nature. You can access Knife River Marina and the Lakewalk from the resort and is adjacent to Two Rivers. Resort visitors can enjoy fire pits, boating, and biking here, and the affordable cabins are heated in case the weather isn’t good.
Minnesota State Fair
1265 Snelling Ave N
St. Paul, MN
The most popular choice for Labor Day weekend has to be the huge annual Minnesota State Fair. They offer delicious food and your favorite animals to visit. This year they’ll have an Amateur talent show and Joan Jett on Labor Day. Enjoy this year’s chocolate dessert salami and bison dogs.
13000 Zoo Blvd
Apple Valley, MN
For those zoo lovers, Labor Day weekend is your last chance to get the full Minnesota Zoo experience. After Labor Day you can’t see the “Big Bugs” exhibit anymore, the exhibit that allows an up close look at insects. Along with the last chance to see this exhibit, enjoy the farm animals and the primates all weekend long.
Minnesota has some excellent options for Labor Day weekend to end the season with a bang.
