Labor Day Weekend Zip & Sip

Thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies will enjoy this one! Zip Lost Pines (located in McKinney Roughs Nature Park) will have the “Cactus Corridor” zipline, measuring 671 feet in length, open for $25 rides for Labor Day Weekend! When your ride is over you can hang out at basecamp and enjoy live music and lawn games like Corn Hole, Horshoes, and Giant Jenga.

Labor Day Weekend Scavenger Hunt
Science Mill | Johnson City, TX
Saturday, Sept. 1 – Monday, Sept. 3 | 10AM – 4PM
If you’re looking for something to do that is fun for the family head over to the Science Mill in Johnson City! They have created a special scavenger hunt that is available for the whole weekend. All you’ll need is a smartphone to answer a few “fact or fiction” questions to complete the hunt, which leads you through the Mill’s exhibits and straight to the treasure!

Labor Day Weekend Waves
NLand Surf Park | Austin, TX

Austin may be miles from the coast, but local surf lovers can still hang ten this labor day weekend at NLand Surf Park’s Labor Day Cookout! Enjoy food, great drink specials, live music, and special pricing at the surf park, plus arts and crafts for the kiddos. The Overlook is dog friendly, so the whole family can join in for this fun event. Labor Day doesn’t have to mean summer is ending, get out on the water and have some fun!
