Labor Day is coming up this weekend. Most use Labor Day as a last 'hurrah' to summer as kids are back in school, or going back to school afterwards. I've never been a huge fan of going to any destination for more than a few days. I guess I'm too much of a home body and it's hard on my credit card, but my kids deserve to get out of Yakima every once in a while, if nothing more than to appreciate Yakima that much more when we get back.
If you're thinking about taking a quick road trip, here are the places we like to go. If time is an issue, you can accomplish any of these in one day so you don't even have to stay overnight, saving you the hotel room fee.
