Fun activities for Memorial Day weekend!

Memorial Day is right around the corner – a time to honor those who have served our country and the unofficial start of summer! With the weather warming up, brighter days ahead and a three-day weekend, it’s the perfect time to kickstart the new season. For some inspiration, we’ve put together a list of activities you can do with friends and family.

Honor veterans

From donating to a veteran’s organization, sending a care package to a veteran you know (or don’t), shopping at veteran-owned businesses, offering a moment of silence, or simply posting a special message on social media, there are many easy and creative ways you can honor all who have served. 

National Memorial Day Concert

Gather around the television and tune in to the annual National Memorial Day Concert which airs on Sunday, May 29, 2022 at 8:00 p.m. EST on PBS and live online. This anticipated event offers family-friendly entertainment while honoring the service and sacrifices of our veterans.

Grill & chill

Round up loved ones and host a BBQ. Head to the store early and stock up on meats, fish, veggies and desserts. It might be a long day of fun under the sun, so be sure to grab some essentials, too, like sunscreen, sunglasses, blankets for when the sun goes down, plenty of water and ice. Take the party up a notch and create patriotic crafts. Take inspiration from the flag – incorporate red, white, blue, stars and stripes into your décor!

Embrace nature

Life seems to be speeding up again, but Memorial Day Weekend is an ideal way to slow down, get away from your computer and appreciate nature. Visit a National Park, go hiking, or just take a walk through the neighborhood with furry friends – get out and appreciate your surroundings.

Score some great deals

On the hunt for a bigger TV, new furniture, or a fresh wardrobe? Score something you’ve been eyeing at a great price with many stores hosting incredible Memorial Day savings. Take a trip to the mall and get something you’ve been putting off for too long – just be sure to get there early as many will do the same.

Start your new home search

Select communities are open on Memorial Day for self-guided tours, which you can book online at a time that works for your schedule. You can also begin your new home search online with floorplans and virtual tours available 24/7.  Start your search at www.lennar.com.

No matter how you spend Memorial Day weekend, be sure to pause and honor our military and first responders while celebrating the freedoms they’ve fought so tirelessly to protect.
