Get Ready for Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day weekend is not only a time to take a much-needed break from work; it’s also a time to reflect on the economic and social achievements of the hard working Americans of the past and present. Here are some holiday weekend suggestions in case you’re still trying to decide!

There is plenty to do for people this coming weekend, like the Exit Game Escape Rooms! They have several themed rooms to choose from that are different difficulties. It always provides a good story to share with your coworkers once you’re back from your long weekend! If you don’t mind the heat, grab some fresh air while hanging out in Whittier Narrows Recreation Area. There are three lakes among the greenery with picnic areas, numerous sports fields, bicycle paths, and more!

Regardless of what you choose to do, we here at Somerset Apartments hope you have a very safe and fun weekend!
