4 Destinations for a Refreshing Memorial Day Weekend Getaway

Lake Tahoe, California

If you love the great outdoors, the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe will call to you on Memorial Day weekend. This is a great weekend for cyclists and mountain bikers, as many mountain bike trails will be opening for the season. It’s also a perfect time to hike as the weather will be warm but not too hot.

Another great way to enjoy the lake is to rent a paddleboard or kayak and explore the 72 miles of shoreline at your own pace. Be sure to visit Sand Harbor, one of the best beaches on the lake.

Even the Heavenly Mountain Gondola opens exclusively for Memorial Day weekend before it opens for its full summer schedule a few weeks later. Also, the Made in Tahoe Festival will be taking place on Memorial Day weekend. It’s a showcase of local products made by Tahoe artisans and chefs. There will also be music, live entertainment and more.

These are just a few of the best Memorial Day vacations where you can get away on this beautiful spring weekend. Remember to book your accommodation as far in advance as possible, as this will be a very popular travel weekend.
