The Google Girls’ Guide to Labor Day Weekend in Philadelphia
It’s that time of year again. Backpacks are being purchased, alarms are being set and beach trips are coming to a tragic end. Whether you are in class all day, everyday, or “Turning Clicks into Clients” like the Google Girls at Results Driven Marketing, there is some light at the end of the first week of class tunnel… And, that is the fun of Labor Day weekend!
Here are some of the events the city of brotherly love is hosting for the weekend of September 1st through the 3rd!

Prisons Today (September 1st)
Have a factual Friday: Did you know that the incarceration rates of the U.S. today are higher than any other country in the world? We didn’t know this until we visited the Prisons Today exhibit at the Eastern State Penitentiary. This exhibit is made for shedding light as to how and why society is the way it is due to these high rates of inmates.

End of Summer 21+ Boat Party (September 3rd)
Philly is ready to end summer with a bang! The Moshulu’s summer attraction, The Deck, is an outdoor bar and dining area, which is docked at Penn’s Landing to stimulate the experience with views of the skyline and Ben Franklin Bridge. This Sunday from 10 pm – 2 am, DJ Deejay will be spinning some of the best beats from the summer so you can dance the night away. Don’t worry, most of us have off from school or work the next day, so you can get a little freaky, we won’t tell.

If none of these events fit your fancy or you need to save some money for your textbooks, take a run through the city! Philadelphia is the perfect city to run in because there are so many routes to take whether you’re going to Broad Street, Kelly Drive, the Art Museum or University City. There are beautiful, diverse views in each of these places that are just waiting to be discovered.
Summer may be coming to an end, but that does not mean the fun has to stop! Philadelphia is full of endless sights to see and events to attend, no matter the time of year. Whether you want to use this guide to plan out your whole weekend, or just a day, the Google Girls have made this especially for you.
