5 Ways to Spend Memorial Day Weekend

8:23 AM

Memorial Day Weekend is all about honoring those who gave their lives for our freedom. It's also a major weekend for kicking off summer time fun. There are many ways to honor those that have given their lives and to enjoy the extended weekend. Firstmate Controls has some great ways for you to enjoy this time with friends and family. Take a look:

Remember Those Who Have Fallen
Memorial Day is the perfect time to visit a National Military Cemetery. If you have children, this can double as an educational opportunity for them. You can always bring flowers to lay by the gravestones, too – even if you didn’t personally know the individual buried there. Red poppies were the flowers traditionally used in the very first Memorial Day observances, so you can bring them if you’re going all-out with your child’s educational historical experience.

Attend a Local Event
Regardless as to where you live, there's a good chance that some kind of activity is going on during Memorial Day Weekend. Whether it's a block party, community barbeque, or a memorial parade, these events are usually complementary or low cost and tons of fun! Get your friends and family together and hit up the local events in your area.

Take a Road Trip
Take advantage of the extended weekend and get away! You can take a day trip or spend the entire weekend traveling and checking out places that are new to you. Enjoy a few days of camping, fishing and hiking, or hit up some shopping opportunities you don't have where you live. Regardless of what you choose to do on your weekend road trip, take the time to relax and de-stress!

Plan a Staycation
Have you really experienced everything there is to do in your town? Do some digging and find some local hidden gems you've not visited yet. Pretend that you're a tourist and visit the tourist attractions nearby. If those ideas don't sound interesting to you, just enjoy the time relaxing and catch up on some reading or dive back into one of your long forgotten hobbies.

Get Out on the Water
Enjoy this time out on the water! What better way to spend the extended weekend than getting some much needed rest and relaxation on a boat? Get your friends together and enjoy a day fishing or cruising around in your boat. If you're spending on the weekend on the water, you're bound to have a great time and make new memories to last a lifetime!
