The countdown to Memorial Day 2015 has officially begun!
Americans are eagerly awaiting the three-day weekend to enjoy with their special someone.
Whether you’re venturing into the hustle and bustle of New York City, or opting for sunshine and sandy beaches – MissTravel is here to get your summer started off right with date ideas adaptable to any destination.
There’s nothing sexier than soaking up the sun on a weekend getaway. Memorial Day is the official mark of pool season for much of the United States.
If Las Vegas is on your travel itinerary, you can’t deny a visit to one of the extravagant pool clubs on the Strip. Feeling more beach and less desert? No problem. Visit a local beach, or book a staycation in your city.
Bonus Tip: Lather on Bain de Soleil for a deep, summer tan that’s sure to leave you beautifully bronze.
Regarded as one of the top shopping weekends of the year, Memorial Day is notorious for pre-summer deals and steals. Perhaps you’ll make a date out of exploring the Mall of America in Minneapolis, or find yourself fingers interlocked working your way down Michigan Avenue in the Windy City. One thing remains certain: do your research prior to hitting the shops.
High-end retailers like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue typically shy away from major holiday sales, while home and fashion boutiques provide the deepest discounts.
Bonus Tip: Stop for a relaxing midday cocktail, it’ll ease the stress of bustling stores and purchasing pricey items.
Dining al fresco is a must for this holiday weekend! There’s nothing quite like enjoying the outdoors with a fresh meal and good company.
Hit Collins Ave in Miami for people-watching, or opt for a relaxing restaurant in Malibu for breathtaking, romantic views of the Pacific Ocean.
Barbecue leads as a staple for most on Memorial Day. This year, consider going for something more luxurious like lobster or steak to truly appreciate the holiday with your travel partner!
Bonus Tip: Avoid a wait by making reservations through OpenTable. Be sure to select “outdoor seating!”
Optimize this three-day weekend by catching some rays and hitting up a few boutiques. Polish off with delicious cuisine and a bottle of Veuve, it’s a surefire way to make your honey’s heart melt!
