This destination is a natural choice. Memorial Day is a patriotic holiday, after all, and the capital of our nation is the perfect place to spend your long weekend. This year’s national Memorial Day Concert takes place on at 8 pm on Sunday, May 26 on the west lawn of the United States Capital.
Closing out the honorifics; the National Memorial Day Parade takes place, Monday, May 27 at 2 pm. Floats, marching bands, and veterans parade down Constitution Avenue past the National Mall. While you’re there take time to remember our nation’s service members at the National Mall Memorials.
The Windy City has a grand Memorial Day parade each Saturday. But before the largest parade in the nation even gets started, the wreath-laying ceremony begins at 11 am on Daley Plaza. Each year, gold star families, parents, spouses, siblings, and children are gifted yellow roses in remembrance.
Nantucket Island is a picture-perfect New England beach town. It’s 30 miles south of Cape Cod and is accessible by plane, a mere 35-minutes in the air from Boston or by boat. The islands annual holiday parade begins at 1 pm on Sunday, May 26 at the Nantucket Legion Hall.
