This weekend is no ordinary three-day reprieve for working stiffs; it's one of the weekends Americans celebrate freedom and patriotism. Yes, it's Memorial Day, when the beach awaits and coolers beg you to dig inside for a cold one. The ways to celebrate may seem limited to sandy shores or backyard barbecues, but there's much more to get into than family gatherings and picnics on the dunes.
To help you decide, Folio Weekly has come up with lots of activities that will make your heart, stomach and Armed Forces happy for 2017's Memorial Day weekend.
No matter what your heart desires this long weekend, there's sure to be something that interests you-no doubt several things-going on in your neck of the woods. So sit back with a beer and let your boat drift out to sea (not recommended) or snuggle up at home with some coffee and a classic novel; Memorial Day weekend has got you covered and so do we.
