What to Do this Labor Day in Phoenix

Montelucia Resort & Spa

Can you believe it?  Summer is officially almost over.  You wouldn’t know it by the thermometer, but Labor Day is next weekend and I for one am putting my feet up! 

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. Two years later Labor Day was celebrated on a Monday and remains the first Monday in September.  The holiday is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers and is a tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Now that you’ve received your history lesson, you can start the barbeque, pass the margaritas and throw the kids in the pool.  Or better yet if you need to getaway, but not incur a large expense, take advantage of some amazing discounts around the Valley that the whole family will enjoy.
