The Best Memorial Day Weekend Getaways

After a long cold winter, summer is (unoffically) finally here! So don't spend the weekend doing yard work or painting the deck. Get out there and enjoy this great, big, beautiful country.[slideshow:104213]

And remember the reason for this solemn holiday. Memorial Day is a holiday to honor people who have died in service of the country. 

Many people celebrate this special time of the year by spending time bonding with friends and family – hosting a barbeque, attending a parade, or heading to the beach.

With that advice in mind, here are some of the best places to celebrate the long weekend.
