5 Things To Do On Memorial Day

With Memorial Day just around the corner, it’s time for all of us working folks to start planning just how we’re going to spend our three day weekend. While typical activities include going to the beach or barbequing in the park with family and friends, here is a list of some activities you may have overlooked or forgotten about.

Canoeing – If your local geography and weather permit, canoeing is a great way to spend a day outdoors. Paddling down a river on a sunny afternoon can be almost anything you want it to be: relaxing, adventurous, even competitive. This is the perfect day trip for either a family, a group of friends or even to do solo. Most canoe rental facilities offer day rates and group discounts and usually round out to about $20 a person. Just be sure to bring extra dry clothes, a bathing suit and towel, sneakers or river shoes and your camera. Oh yeah, don’t forget the map!!

Museums – Your city or town is sure to be home to a museum you haven’t been to yet and as most museums are open just about every day of the year, this three day weekend is your perfect opportunity. Admission prices can range from about $5 -$20 but some amazing museums (like the Smithsonian) are free and open to the public. Additionally, many museums have discounts or free admission for members of the armed forces. A museum can provide an entire day of fun and entertainment for just about anyone and who knows, you might even learn something.
