Before you say goodbye to summer, why not have some last minute fun in New York? New York City has more to offer than mouth-watering barbecues and great beaches on this three-day weekend.

It doesn't matter what you're looking for - day trips, popular attractions, or stay-cations - you'll find something you, your friends, and family will love. After all, it's called the city that never sleeps for a reason!

There's plenty of things to do in New York City

We know lots of your friends will be getting out of the city this weekend, but don't be jealous, there are plenty of things to do around the city and five boroughs.

Labor Day Weekend is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities because pools and beaches will close soon. Check out Coney Island's great fireworks display, and how about getting to Governors Island tonight. It will be open late, and it is known to be one of New York's best seasonal destinations.

How about letting loose at a summer music festival and go day-glo crazy? Enjoy the Caribbean culture by celebrating their annual West Indian American Day Carnival, or check out the U.S. Open. If your favorite thing is to have fun in the sun then why not enjoy one of many beautiful beaches near NYC and check out their happy hour.

Beach Bazaar at Riis Park

What goes on at the Riis Park beach bazaar? Well, it's all about ice cold drinks, chill music, and hanging out on the sand.

You'll enjoy music by Get Summered DJs that will keep you celebrating long after the great food and hula hoops have tired you out.

Stay late on Governors Island

Governors Island will have extended hours on Friday so expect a jam-packed weekend there. Remember the last ferry back leaves at 10 p.m. to Manhattan.

Don't forget to check out the NYC Unicycle Festival -- yes, they really have a celebration of unicycles -- that takes over the island on Saturday and Sunday. If you're looking for the perfect spot to have a picnic with friends -- it's also open on Labor Day.

Brooklyn Bridge Park's pop-up pool

The pop-up pool will only be there for two more weeks at the Brooklyn Bridge Park.

This is the last season -- it closes on September 10th -- but Brooklyn lawmakers are trying to change that.

Let's hope they can, but in the meantime, you can still go for a dip from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There really is something for everyone this Labor Day weekend, so take advantage of all the free, fun and outdoor activities this great city has to offer.
