Looking for something to do or a last-minute trip for Labor Day? You should check out the Labor Day Celebration at the Historic Penn Center.
My husband I love visiting Penn Center for the beauty and history of this majestic site. If you ever get a chance to visit, you will definitely want to come back. Not to mention their farmer’s market has the sweetest vendors and the best shrimp burger in the Lowcountry.
