School’s out for a long weekend and family time is rare now that we are in full on school mode. Plan a day, afternoon, or just a few hours to spend together as a family.

Whether you like to hang out at home or get out and explore new things, here are five things to do with the family this Labor Day.

1Find a new series or watch a movie on Netflix


This weekend you could watch King Kong, Nacho Libre, and Disney classic Lilo and Stitch. See the complete list of everything coming to Netflix in September here. 

2Relax by the Pool

As summer comes to an end, pool hours change for neighborhood pools and Williamson County Rec Center pools. The four outdoor pools located at the recreation centers in Fairview, Nolensville, Spring Hill and Franklin will be open weekends only: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays. All hours are weather permitting.

On Labor Day, Monday, September 3, the outdoor pools will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This will be the last day of seasonal operation for the outdoor pools. Read more about recreation center pool hours here. 

3Eat at a new restaurant

With busy weekday schedules, there’s often not enough time for a family meal. Try one of the many new places that recently opened- Miller’s Ale House, Shake Shack in Nashville, or try rolled ice cream at Top Cold Grill Ice Cream & Tea in downtown Franklin.

4Family day at SOAR Adventure 

Get outdoors and take on some family-friendly competition at Soar Adventure. You can test your skills on the obstacles at the Soar Tower or join in on a game of mini golf. Learn more about Soar Adventure here. 

5Free Concert at Live on the Green
