Nothing feels more well-deserved than a 3-day weekend! Serving as the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day weekend is bustling with fun activities. If you haven’t already made plans, don’t fret! We took a dose of the #foreveronvacation mentality Alessandra Ambrosio embraces so well, and created a full-blown Memorial Day guide to enjoy the holiday.
Memorial Day Sale Shopping
Some of the best sales of the year of your favorite apparel brands happen on Memorial Weekend! Be sure to first scope out online some of your favorite pieces; that way you’ll be prepared to hit the store and swipe them up before they’re gone! In addition to swimwear and apparel, lots of home goods and electronics stores have a sale for the holiday weekend, too!
Check out a Local Event
With the summer weather coming upon us, outdoor events are the place to be. Whether you live in a small town or a teeming city, check out your local newspaper for unique events happening in your neighborhood this holiday. You’ll be in for a treat when you stumble upon an activity you wouldn’t normally seek out, like a free concert or a street fair or an outdoor movie screening!
Get-Together with Friends for a Cookout
A day-off is a cause for celebration, and who better to celebrate with than your friends? Organize a get-together with the friends who stayed in town for the weekend, and have everyone pitch in an item for a cookout. A barbecue is always a crowd favorite, and if you don’t have a grill at home, just visit a local park to use a community grill!
Give Back and Volunteer
It’s always a good idea to volunteer, and during a holiday that serves to remind us of those who have made sacrifices for the greater good, it only seems fitting to do the same. Whether its pitching in at a soup kitchen, making care packages for those in need, or contributing to a local Memorial Day event, there’s plenty of fun and rewarding ways to give back on Memorial Day.
