Busy day on the roads for Labor Day in NH
HOOKETT- Today wraps up a busy weekend in the Granite State and an even busier day on the roads. It was a beautiful weekend to get away up north to the lakes or to any of New Hampshire’s beaches. It was crowded on the roads, as many tried to soak up every last bit of vacation.
As thousands head south back home to Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, many stopped at the Welcome Center in Hooksett to eat, drink, let the dogs out, and refuel.
With gas prices down, travel to New Hampshire destinations is estimated to be up 5 percent from last year, with around 590,000 people crossing our border, spending around $84 million.
A gorgeous 90 degree day made it even harder for vacationers to call it a day.
“It was very tough, I’d like to stay up there for the whole week unfortunately I’ve got to pay the bills and get back to work,” said Ted Broderick of South Boston.
