With the arrival of Labor Day weekend, summer will soon be coming to an end. Travel contributor Elaine Labalme says forecasts call for good weather over the next few days, and families should take full advantage.

Luckily for Pittsburghers, there are a variety of activities nearby for families to check out this holiday weekend.

Labalme suggests a trip to drivable Hershey Park and Lancaster. Or drive a bit further to see the festivals in Cape May, New Jersey.

Want something a bit more exciting? Head to Atlantic City and explore the extravagant Revel Resort or sail over to Annapolis, Maryland for beginning boat classes and rides on the Woodwind Schooners.
