Sounds like it is entirely up to you, with no workplace repercussions either way.

What would you like to do?

Especially if it's a floating holiday, which is intended to cover holidays not already given off by the company. If I wasn't planning anything this weekend, I'd save the floater for a different time.

The OP didn't state this was a use or lose it scenario.
I am more in agreement with you, but there's nothing wrong with taking a PTO just to relax at home.

Since your boss offered the ball is in your court. Take it or not, for whatever reason.

Bingo.

I believe that you are fortunate that you have a boss made sure you knew that you had the option. Sounds like you are "part of the team" there.
