Memorial day is just as important as New Years Day. It’s not just a holiday to pay homage to the military. It is the official kickoff of the summer season. To point you in the right direction, we’ve decided to provide some of the hottest places to be to help you enjoy the holiday/holiday weekend.
Here are the top places to be for Memorial Day Weekend:
If you want to turn up then Vegas is an obvious choice for a weekend getaway. You can expect large crowds in Vegas during this 3-day weekend, but what would Vegas be without the pool-goers, booze guzzlers and daring gamblers? Pool parties on the strip will definitely be a scene, as well as the clubs, restaurants and bars.
If you want to go hardcore patriotic, there really isn’t a more suitable place than D.C. With tons of military ceremonies, visitors can also attend the National Memorial Day Parade or the Rolling Thunder Run to the Wall motorcycle rally. For those that want to pay their respects there will be several military ceremonies along with free concerts.

And if you plan on bringing the kids along their will be plenty of activities such as, face-painting, balloon art and playgrounds.
