It’s hard to believe, but Memorial Day is officially upon us. After this past winter, everyone is ready for the warm weather, BBQ’s, pool parties, and trips to the beach. The summer is a time to explore the outdoors. Whether you plan on keeping it low-key or traveling this holiday, we’ve got the perfect activities for you to enjoy with family and friends.
1. Have a picnic in the park.
Enjoy some rays, pack your favorite sandwich and roll around in the grass a little.
2. Walk to the local ice cream parlor
Get a scoop of that sweet mint chocolate chip you love or colorful cotton candy (if you’re feeling like a daredevil).
3. Put on your cowboy/girl boots or rocker T-shirt
Head to a concert or a music festival. Live music always seems to be ten times better in the summer.
4. Get in a round of 18.
The United States is home to some of the most beautiful golf courses. Pick one of the top 100 best courses here.
5. Put your toes in the sand
Whether it’s the Jersey shore, the Outer Banks, Virginia Beach or Galveston Island – the beach is always the first thought in everyone’s head when it comes to Memorial Day Weekend!
6. Family time is the best time!
Sit on the porch, deck, or have a water balloon fight in the backyard with the kids or friends. After all it’s the small life pleasures that really matter.
7. Take a hike!
One of the most underrated activities is hiking. Mornings are the best time to get out in the wilderness and reconnect with nature!
8. Cast your line
Go fishing on the nearest lake and bring home a fresh catch for dinner. You can’t get much more organic than that!
9. Enjoy the weather on horseback
Horses are one of the world’s most beautiful creatures. Spend the weekend horseback riding through the fields or visit a local course to make it a fun, competitive activity.
10. Camping by the lake is an oldie but goody.
Some of the best places to set up tents around the U.S. are Pine Grove Furnace State Park, Big Bend National Park, and Shenandoah National Park.
Your adventure awaits! We hope all of our Aqua employees, clients, friends and family have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
