Labor Day is supposed to be the one day a year where everything shuts down to give the workforce a holiday just to themselves. Of course, that’s not how it actually happens, but it’s a nice thought. Still, that long weekend is a source of fun and relaxation for many Americans. It’s the last chance for families to spend time together before school starts up and the last chance for everybody else to enjoy the weather before fall kicks in. This year for Labor Day, contact your friendly travel agency in Massachusetts to find a vacation to one of these exciting locations.
