Does Your Family Have One More Vacation Planned for the End of the Summer?

As Labor Day weekend approaches, there are a number of families who are planning their final vacations of the summer. From days at the beach to spending the weekend in a historic southern city, there are a number of options that allow travelers to enjoy their weekends away from work and responsibilities. Whether you are looking for a day full of horse carriage tours or you want to spend just one evening on a private ride in a horse carriage, there are many cities where you can enjoy yourself and learn a lot of information about the area that you are visiting.

Of all the places that folks like to travel to for vacation, it should come as no surprise that there are a number who like to visit a place like Charleston, South Carolina. With a combination of 90 miles of Atlantic coastline and an average daily temperature of 65.6 degrees Fahrenheit, Charleston is one of the places where visitors can enjoy the ocean, golf on a new course, and take evening horse carriage tours of areas that are 100s of years old.

Consider some of these facts and figures about the travel industry and how a place like Charleston, South Carolina plays into the economy of the nation:

  • Making vacations the activity that makes families most happy, 37% of families indicate that vacations make them happy.
  • 42% of travelers indicate that they feel more romantic while they are on vacation than when they are at home.
  • One out of nine U.S. jobs depend on tourism and travel industry.
  • 2.7% of the U.S.’s gross domestic product is attributed to tourism and travel.
  • Charleston has over 300 years of fascinating history because it was founded in 1670.
  • Partly because of its history, Charleston attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

The last few days of summer are fading quickly, so this means that a number of families are looking for a way to make sure that they fit just one more vacation in before the end of the summer. Whether you are traveling to the beaches of South Carolina or you are going to spend one more weekend boating on your favorite lake in the Midwest, make sure that you make the most of the last three day weekend of the summer.
