Looking forward to Labor Day in Central Maine? So are we! While the long weekend means that summer is officially drawing to a close, it doesn’t mean that the fun has to stop. Here are a few of the best things to see and do in the area to celebrate:
Take a Ride on a Vintage Train
Labor Day Weekend is your last chance to take in some of the best views in New England aboard the Amtrak Great Dome Car! This chic, vintage train car made her first journey in 1955. She is two-stories and her upper level has huge windows – so you won’t miss any of the gorgeous scenery outside.
