We Love Labor Day Weekend!

Labor Day weekend is almost here, so it’s a time for many to get ready for relaxation and recharging during your much-needed break from work.

There is plenty to do for the weekend warriors in the city, but for those who need to get away from the noise and craziness, there are parks like Craig Regional Park. There are large, mature trees, lots of open spaces, a lake, and creeks along with an alluring rose garden. Definitely a good place to take the whole family. Still, the best is when you make your holiday weekend a staycation. You don’t have to drive anywhere or pay for any entertainment. You just gather friends and family, pull the grill out, and enjoy a good meal and good conversation with those you hold dear. We like the sound of that.

From all of us here at Highland Pinetree Apartments, we hope you have a safe and fun weekend with your loved ones.

Visit Fullerton’s Arboretum this Weekend.
