As a federal holiday, Memorial Day provides most people with a day off to celebrate it. Even though it is not technically the beginning of summer, most people consider it as such. You should honor the occasion and also take the opportunity to celebrate the beginning of the summer season with your family.
We have gathered the top six U.S. beach destinations for Memorial Day weekend:
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Although Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are on Cape Cod, Provincetown is the most entertaining place. The Mayflower arrived here in 1620 before reaching Plymouth, as you know if youre familiar with American history. Also, LGBTQ+ people have been coming here since the 1890s. During that time, writers and actresses began to frequent this beach area, which is now a stunning architectural sanctuary with New England cottage-style buildings.
If your vacation takes you to California, Malibu, located near Los Angeles, is a fantastic place to visit. Malibu Lagoon State Beach is not only a surfer’s paradise, but also offers delicious cuisine. The Japanese cuisine at Nobu Malibu and Moonshadows Malibu is excellent.
Sanibel Island, Florida
Sanibel Island is known for its shell beach and the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum. It is also close to Captiva Island, where the Bubble Room is located. You should go to this cool place at least once. It’s a rather low-key way to celebrate Memorial Day, but it’s worth it.
Gulf Coast, Florida
Siesta Key, Lido Key and Longboat Key are ideal places to spend the Memorial Day long weekend. In these three communities, just a few miles apart, you’ll find some of Florida’s best beaches and gorgeous views. Avoid Miami Beach this year and visit these wonderful substitute beaches.
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
One of the most famous beach destinations in South Carolina is Hilton Head Island, which is considered a posh substitute for Myrtle Beach.
The Coastal Discovery Museum is also located here, along with some of the top golf courses.
If you are spending the long weekend in Hawaii, you must visit Maui. The most famous and second-largest island of Hawaii is Maui. Here you can find the beaches of Kihei, Wailea and Hana.
They are known for being some of the ‘most beautiful beaches in the world. So spending Memorial Day Weekend there would be wonderful for anyone interested.
