After the lazy summer days, September is a great month for welcoming the cooler weather. September begins the back –to – school session for the students and a return to normal work routines for others. The autumnal equinox and the fall season begin on September 22. Bubbling August temperature settles into crystal clear days of September that are great for outdoor activities. The greenery of summer starts to fade to the brilliant oranges and yellows in late September.
Enjoy the nice temperature, outdoor activities, carnivals, street fairs, market and sport events. The month begins with a national holiday, Labor Day, when many beach gatherings and barbecue cookouts happen to celebrate this unofficial end of summer.
