Memorial Day weekend is a fantastic time to treat yourself to a much-needed vacation. But with so many unforgettable Memorial Day weekend getaways out there, how do you possibly choose where to go and what to do?
Whether you’re craving some downtime in the great outdoors or you’re more a fan of playing online casino games, here are our top picks to make your Memorial Day weekend one to remember.
Need some excitement in your life? You can’t beat the glitz and the glamor of Las Vegas, Nevada. Get your adrenalin pumping at one of the sought-after casinos, where you can take a temporary break from online slots and try your luck sitting down in front of a real slot machine (or a hundred!) Once you’ve played a few rounds and perhaps taken part in some casino table games, you’ll have the chance to attend a show or tuck into a delicious meal at an esteemed restaurant.
Of course, Las Vegas has a lot more to offer than just its notable nightlife. During the daylight hours, why not explore the Grand Canyon or head out on a scenic kayak tour of the glistening green waters of Emerald Cove?
The Finger Lakes
The Finger Lakes in northwest New York state is a go-to destination for nature lovers. If sipping on a crisp virgin cocktail lakeside with the sun on your skin and a beautiful view in every direction you turn sounds like a dream, then you can’t go wrong with a vacation here! The region comprises 14 counties and 11 narrow (finger-shaped) lakes running roughly north to south. Most residents lead simple, rural lifestyles, which is great news if you’re hoping to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a few days.
Along with making the most of the beauty of the lakes, vacationers can also visit various state parks and museums, including the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester (a must for families with young children) and the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse.
