Most of us can remember the joy that the first days of summer vacation brought with them – and on the opposite end of the spectrum, the sadness that came with the last vacation before school started again. Labor Day weekend is, in the United States, essentially the end of summer and the last chance most Americans have for a vacation before the December holidays.
In other words, it’s an incredibly popular time for people to get the heck out of their houses for even a couple of days – and that means all the vacation spots nearby are way more popular than usual.
