(BPT) - Labor Day doesn’t have to be a sign of the end of the summer season. Rather, it’s America’s opportunity to take an extra day of rest and relaxation and continue soaking up the warmth of summertime. With the sun shining bright, here are some ways to extend summer well into fall and beyond.
* Enjoy a beach bonfire with friends. Bonfires are a great outdoor activity because you can host a group of any size, during any season. Grab a group of friends and head to the beach or backyard to enjoy a cozy bonfire nearly any time of year. Toast some marshmallows and make s’mores — a year-round crowd favorite!
* Go to a sporting event, and try it yourself! Baseball, America’s favorite pastime, is a summertime sporting event that everyone loves, and lasts well into the fall season. Grab your friends on a sunny afternoon and hit the ballpark to enjoy warm, autumn days. Want to extend the fun? After watching the game, organize an amateur scramble and compete under the sun.
* Cool off at a local beach, lake or pool. Soak up late summer warmth after the Labor Day holiday by visiting your nearest swimming pool, lake or beach. When summertime comes to a close, the fun doesn’t have to stop. Take a boat out on a nearby lake with friends as fall approaches.
* Run with the sun. While the heat disappears and fall rolls in, there are still plenty of ways to take advantage of the sun. Powering your home with a solar system does not require constant sunshine and operates in sunny, cool, cloudy or foggy climates alike. Give your wallet a break and make the switch to home solar. Residential solar companies like Sunrun design, install, insure, monitor and maintain home solar systems on the homeowner’s roof, while you pay just for the electricity at a lower rate than your current utility. Sunrun customers have historically saved 20 percent on their energy bills — now that’s making the most of the sun!
