Are you approaching Labor Day weekend without any scheduled plans? Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to find things in driving distance right here in New England … from country fairs and music festivals to coastal beaches and inland parks. We’re expecting relief from the extreme heat over the holiday weekend. There should be quite a cool off, but the heat may return early next week. And if you are taking to the road, be aware that gas prices are on the high side: Labor Day gas prices hit 4-year high — and probably won’t drop much after the holiday.
Remember, Labor Day is only the symbolic end of summer – we don’t officially move into the autumn until September 22! If you can’t fit all these ideas and activities in this weekend, you have a few more weeks to try before leaf-peeping season starts.
