Memorial Day Weekend – Ideas

by Susan Hamersky, California Concierge LLC
For many people across the US, Memorial Day weekend is the official kick-off to summer. If you’re looking to do something beyond the usual family picnic, backyard barbecue or neighborhood block party, there’s no shortage of regional opportunities to celebrate both the meaning of the holiday and the anticipation of sunny skies and longer days.
National Parks
You can spend your holiday weekend exploring hiking trails, beachcombing, watching wildlife, rock-climbing and participating in water sports. If Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon or the Great Smoky Mountains are your top picks, however, make your Memorial Day reservations in advance.

Music and Food Festivals

Foodies may want to set their sights on the diversity of food festivals cooked up over the long holiday weekend. If you love music, it’s not hard to find a Memorial Day weekend music festival to suit your particular taste. Many of these have been held for decades and attract musicians from all over the world.


Memorial Day is but one of 365 days to express appreciation and pay homage to the men and women who have made American freedoms possible. Consider attending a Memorial Day Parade or by visiting a local museum. The Palm Springs Air Museum celebrates the spirit of Memorial Day in a special way. A World War II-era B-25 Mitchell bomber airplane drops thousand of red and white carnations to salute fallen soldiers.

California Concierge gives me the freedom to have fun in my down time. I use them for everything from booking tours for my visitors to weekly grocery shopping, errand running and overseeing home repair projects. They even delivered personal items to me from home when I was hospitalized and cleared the refrigerator of items that would spoil before my return. They are life savers.
