Labor Day in Dripping Springs

HomeActivitiesLabor Day in Dripping Springs

All good things must come to an end, and as much as we hate it, that means summer will soon be fading into fall. Gone will be the long days stretching out before us, offering a seemingly endless array of possibilities, sleeping in late, hanging out by the pool, and exploring new places during summer vacations. But before fall officially begins and the hectic chaos of school, sports, and fall holidays start to make their presence known, it is time for one last visit to the carefree moments of the summer. Labor Day, a day created to pay homage to hard-working Americans, serves as the unofficial goodbye to the season and is often the weekend travelers choose to incorporate as their annual vacation! Offering a relaxing end to the longest days of the year, this final summer holiday is destined to be the one you remember most when you choose to spend it in the heart of Texas Hill Country. Ramping the comfort, excitement, and luxury values to the next level, staying in any of our I Love Dripping Springs holiday hideaways will give you the relaxing vacation you deserve!

Breakfast at the Oak Creek Café, 660 US-290

It can take a lot of energy to do nothing, and fueling your tank with a big breakfast at the Oak Creek Café is the perfect way to start your Dripping Springs Labor Day weekend adventures. Offering classic American dishes and a delicious and innovative special menu that may just offer some patriotic pancakes as they have done in the past, this cozy café is a shining example of why breakfast should be the most important meal of the day! (And their lunch is pretty spectacular as well!)

The Front Festival 2023: Film Showcase-Future Front Texas, Three Venues in Austin

Offering a fascinating lineup of films, poetry and music will be represented as well. This annual event takes place in three different venues—the Line Hotel Austin, The Future Front House, and Laguna Gloria. It opens with a cool pool party on the first night of the three-day event!

Shop the Sales This Dripping Springs Labor Day Weekend

Our favorite part of the holiday is the sales being offered at local stores, and our Mercer Street shops are destined to be your favorite places to play! Pick out a stylish new outfit at Starrs on Mercer (209 Mercer Street), buy yourself a new pair of earrings at Vintage Soul (302 Mercer Street), or find the perfect painting to hang over your sofa back home at Mercer Street Art & Boutique (330 Mercer Street.) For those seeking an unusual souvenir or perhaps a gift for the sweet girl watching your fur baby at home, Revel Wilde Mercantile + Home, also located at 330 Mercer Street, is destined to have the perfect item, and it will probably be on sale!

Dripping Springs Farmers Market, Saturdays, Veterans Memorial Park

There is something special about roaming the aisles of a farmers market in the summer, and Dripping Springs Farmers Market (also held on Wednesdays at Founders Park) is one of our favorite summer distractions! Offering fresh produce, homemade baked goods, and arts and craft pieces you never knew you needed, the market provides a fun way to ensure your kiddos eat healthy and adds more ways to shop in your downtime.

Labor Day with I Love Dripping Springs

Our homes are designed to be an integral part of your vacation experience, and their options for entertainment may just entice you to stay in and enjoy an all-American Labor Day barbecue! Many offer crystal-clear pools that will be greatly appreciated, especially as temperatures will be warm during the holiday, and as you put the finishing touches on your summer tan, watch your children play underwater tea party, and sip frozen margaritas on this perfectly languid day, you may wonder why you ever have to move from the lounge chair you are lounging on. Of course, our homes also offer putting greens, hiking trails, cornhole games, and hot tubs, so you may be encouraged to check out some of those other activities as well. If you are seeking the ultimate in lazy experiences, be sure to pick a property with a hammock and claim it as your own for the stay! Fully equipped kitchens will make it fun to toss together the famous family potato salad recipe and outdoor kitchens (or propane grills) will get mom out of the kitchen and let dad show off his skills this Labor Day in Dripping Springs.
