It's the time of year when the days start growing shorter and the air starts to turn a little cooler. Labor Day weekend in Orlando is the time when many begin to say goodbye to summer and fully transition into the fall season. Before the summer is out, plans are made to celebrate the season one last time for the year.

Florida may seem like an endless summer paradise, being sunny and hot with pristine beaches. But the fall season is alive and well in The Sunshine State, and you can start your fall shenanigans in Orlando over the long Labor Day weekend.

This weekend, enjoy hitting the beach with your pals or splash at a cool waterpark. Or, if you want to get in touch with nature, you can escape on an African safari without ever leaving Florida.

You can also check out some different events happening around the Orlando region for Labor Day weekend.

You could have the chance to find magical fairy doors at a lush Orlando garden, or munch on the best food Orlando has to offer. Whatever you’re into, Labor Day weekend in Orlando will be the best start to your fall season.
