Flushing Meadows-Corona Park
Flushing Meadows-Corona Park could be just the entertainment hotspot you’re looking for if a day outdoors, coupled with countless entertainment options, is at the top of your Labor Day weekend to-do list. While there’s too much to take in over a single day, you could start things off with a picnic below the Unisphere, then head over to the Queens Botanical Gardens, Museum and Theatre. Or if you’d rather see a baseball game with friends or family instead, you can catch an afternoon Mets game at nearby Citi Field on the official Labor Day holiday. But whatever you choose, you’ll never be short of relaxation or entertainment.
