Saying “goodbye” to summer doesn’t have to be all that bad …

The three-day weekend and national holiday means major events will be going down in a city-near-you. Booking a trip to Boston? Here are the best things to do, the restaurants to visit and the hottest events for your long weekend stay.

-Restaurants: Boston Discovery Guide advised that since many Bostonians will be headed to Nantucket, Cape Cod or Martha’s Vineyard, it will be easy enough to make a reservation at a restaurant. Here are our top suggestions of where you should book a reservation now: Mistral (open Monday from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.), Neptune Oyster (open Monday 11:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m.) and Myers + Chang (open Monday from 11:30 a.m. until 10 p.m.).

-Fireworks Over Boston Harbor: Saturday Sept. 3 at 8:30 p.m., viewers can check out the fireworks show over Boston Harbor which will be launched between the North End and Seaport. Boston Discovery suggests that the best viewing spots will be along Christopher Columbus Park and Long Wharf in the North End, the Piers Park in East Boston or the South Boston Waterfront area. Stake out your seats prior to the show for the best views!

-Island Breeze: Labor Day Weekend Day Party: This event will kick off on Saturday, Sept. 3 at 3 p.m. Party-goers can expect music from DJ Papadon, DJ Powaserge, John Hype and a special guest. The party will be going until 10 p.m. and will take place at Garage Nightclub. Tickets are still available here for up to $20.

-Pier Pressure White Yacht Party Cruise: Because partying on a yacht is always a good idea.
