Memorial Day

Memorial Day
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May (most recently observed May 29, 2006). It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it expanded to include those who died in any war or military action. One of the longest standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911.

Memorial Day Weekend Getaway Part 2

Memorial Day Weekend Getaway Part 2

Number 6
Palm Springs, California
Located just 110 miles east of Los Angeles, this pristine desert resort was once known as the “Playground of the Stars,” thanks to past residents like Steve McQueen, Bob Hope, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra. Even today, the only place you’re likely to find a higher concentration of star power is at the Betty Ford Center.

Three things to do in three days: Duffers will want to check out one of the 80-plus public golf courses that Palm Springs has to offer. Of particular interest is the Cimarron Golf Resort, an upscale 36-hole facility with two championship layouts. But why stop there? True sport stars will also want to lay down their clubs in favor of a racquet at one of Palm Springs' many famous tennis clubs. Founded by movie stars like Charlie Farrell and Ralph Bellamy, these are the clubs that first drew curious vacationers into the desert. And what’s a vacation without a little shopping (if not to make our girl happy)? From designer clothing to rare antiques, shopping in Palm Springs isn’t just a pastime, it’s a glorified art form.

Number 5
Big Sky, Montana
Let’s be honest: When you think of Montana, you think of lonely cowboys and nervous sheep. However, one trip to Big Sky is all you’ll need to reverse your thinking. That’s because this year-round resort destination is full of exceptional accommodations, incredible mountain views and miles and miles of unparalleled trails.

Three things to do in three days: Just because summer has arrived doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the 4,350-foot Big Sky. Simply put on your hiking boots and take a scenic lift to the top for a full day of hiking. Once your day is done, get ready to get tossed in the drink as you go on an adrenalin-pumping whitewater rafting adventure atop one of Big Sky’s brisk currents. Finally, relax your weary bones at the end of it all by getting a Swedish massage at the well-appointed Solace Spa.

Number 4
Hilton Head, South Carolina
A beautiful destination at any time of the year, Hilton Head truly comes alive in the summer when its warm weather and seaside appeal packs in the tourists. Few towns in America serve up Hilton Head's unique blend of Southern charm and island hospitality; so go for the unsurpassed golfing opportunities, but stay for the captivating art scene and gorgeous architecture.

Three things to do in three days: Discover why Hilton Head is considered a golfer’s paradise as you tee off at the Harbour Town Golf Links, home to the Verizon Heritage PGA tournament. And since your golf clubs many eventually end up in the water, you might as well join them in a kayak as Hilton Head offers beautiful undisturbed marshland for you and your partner to paddle through. Now that you’ve had your exercise, why don’t you enjoy some beach dining as you rip into some oysters and soft shell crabs? After all, isn’t it time you got a little selfish about shellfish?

Number 3
Waterloo, New York
More than 24 cities and towns have claimed to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. But after years of debate, Waterloo silenced its competition in May of 1966, when Lyndon Johnson issued a presidential proclamation confirming the Seneca County village's title as Memorial Day's original home.

Three things to do in three days: History buffs will enjoy a visit to the village’s prestigious Memorial Day Museum. Housed within a 22-room brick mansion, the museum is dedicated to displaying the many records and mementos associated with Memorial Day and the Civil War era. Also of note is the Terwilliger Museum, which contains a replica of a historical general store, Native American artifacts and other memorable Waterloo firsts. Lastly, while visiting Waterloo, don’t forget to bring your fishing pole! The Cayuga-Seneca Canal is the perfect place for dipping a line or simply enjoying a quiet picnic.

Number 2

Three things to do in three days: Hop on your bike and hit the trails of Sedona’s Red Rock Country where you’ll witness some of the most mesmerizing rock formations in the world. Another option is to take in some big-game watching at the majestic Out of Africa Wildlife Park. Still have energy for more? Enjoy a day on the links at the scenic Sedona Golf Resort, widely considered one of the world’s most memorable courses.

Number 1
Lake Tahoe, Nevada/California
Bordering Nevada and California, Lake Tahoe is a freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada that is also one of America’s most desirable destinations thanks to its abundance of outdoor activities. Vacationers can look forward to incredible fresh-powder skiing in the wintertime and unsurpassed, hiking, mountain biking and boating during the summer. Regardless of the season, Lake Tahoe is always a vacation wonderland.

Three things to do in three days: Salty old sea dogs will rejoice in Lake Tahoe’s endless array of water sports. From yachting to parasailing to windsurfing, there’s no shortage to the ways you can get wet. Those who prefer to keep both feet firmly planted on the ground will also enjoy the dizzying collection of backcountry hiking trails. Of particular interest is the Tahoe Rim Trail, a 165-mile path that encompasses the ridge tops of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Cap it all off with a little gambling in the nearby town of Stateline, and you have all the makings of an unforgettable weekend.
