Real talk: There's nothing better than the weekend. Well, unless you have a long weekend ahead of you. It’s those times when you’re #blessed with a three-day holiday weekend, or you’ve managed to save up some PTO to treat yourself to a mini vacation, that are the best times to check off a few items on your to-do list. When that rare extra day comes, you’re going to want some long weekend captions to show off what you’re doing on Instagram.

When you’re not sleeping in, you could be doing something Insta-worthy like making a scrumptious breakfast with your partner or relaxing by the pool with your roommates. Try making a few of the viral TikTok recipes you’ve been bookmarking, or lounging out on one of the coolest pool floats that are made for sunny snaps. If you and your besties feel up for a little adventure, you could always go on a mini road trip to a place you’ve never been before, provided you’re following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (The CDC currently says to delay traveling until you’re fully vaccinated, and even then, you should still follow safety protocols such as wearing a mask and washing your hands often.) It’s times like these when a long weekend quote would be perfect for your Instagram.

Whether your vibe is to relax, be active, or have a romantic weekend, you’ll want to keep these 40 long weekend captions that we curated on hand for any snaps or videos you want to post. You could even put together a cute photo dump of your entire weekend on Sunday or Monday before going back to work to really show how you spent your extra free time.
