Looking for adventures this Labor Day Weekend? The Desert Sun compiled some great ideas!
11 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Swing on by the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs for live DJs and poolside drinks to start the weekend. Must be 21.
Visit either The Coachella Valley Brewing Company or La Quinta Brewing Company for tours and samplings of locally-crafted beers.
Enjoy dinner at Sirocco, the hotel restaurant at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells. Nearby restaurants include Cork Tree, Arnold Palmer's, Morgan's in the Desert or Shabu Shabu Zen and Sake Bar.
8 p.m.: Beach Boys co-founders Brian Wilson and Al Jardine take us back to the '60s with their performance at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. Toast the end of the evening with drinks at the casino bar, 12th Floor Cocktail Lounge & Wine Bar.
Keedy's Fountain Grill in Palm Desert, serves up inspired dishes including hotcakes, chili cheese omelet or the Tex-mex scramble. There are also classic sandwiches on the menu including the Reuben, tuna melt or French dip. Other great brunch spots include Rick's Desert Grill, FARM or Wilma & Frieda's Cafe.
Visit the Childrens's Discovery Museum of the Desert in Rancho Mirage, the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, Palm Springs Air Museum or the Palm Desert location of the Palm Springs Art Museum.
7 p.m.: The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa is bringing the flavor of the big island to the valley with their Hawaiin Luau BBQ on Sunday - activities happening all weekend. The menu includes lomi-lomi salmon, seared swordfish and Kalbi beef ribs. And a true luau wouldn't be complete without Polynesian dance and music following dinner.
Take last-minute advantage before "season" of lowered rates at many of the area's golf courses, including Indian Canyons Golf Resort, Desert Willow Golf Resort and Indian Wells Golf Resort.
Visit Wet 'n' Wild in Palm Springs. Through Labor Day Weekend only, tickets purchased online are $19.99.
