As hard as it is to believe, it’s that time of the year again and Memorial Day Weekend is upon us. That means many things to many people. If you were part of the greatest generation then you will reminisce about the great struggle of WWII and ponder upon some of the miraculous outcomes from it. The restoration of Israel as a nation for instance, or the rise of The United States to be the greatest world power.
Perhaps though you are too young to be affected emotionally by such things. If that is the case then you are still most likely influenced by a loved one or friend for whom this day holds honor. And if you are a veteran then this day holds special meaning for you, as well it should. Because you are one of the heros for whom this day holds meaning for the rest of us. Here then are thre places you can go this weekend just because of who you are and what you have done… Enjoy!
- Blue Star Museums. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America.

See the map below or select from the list of states for museums that are participating in the Blue Star Museums 2018 summer season.
- Busch Gardens. Busch Gardens is the name of two amusement parks in the United States, owned and operated by SeaWorld Entertainment. The original park is in Tampa, Florida, and the second park is in Williamsburg, Virginia.
3. California’s Great America. Roller coasters, live shows, amusement park food favorites and a water park. Satisfy your craving for thrilling rides on coasters such as Demon, Flight Deck or Gold Striker, the tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster in Northern Cali, with high speed turns, twists and drops at speeds of up to 54 miles per hour. Coming in 2018, blaze a new path on RailBlazer, the west coast’s only single-rail steel roller coaster with a 90 degree initial descent and three inversions. For those with families with younger children, Planet Snoopy offers pint sized thrills that the kids will love. everyone has used up most of their energy, time to head over to Boomerang Bay for a cool down by the lagoon or hop on a tube and lounge on down the long and lazy river. In the end, this amusement and water park has everything needed for a great day of fun right here in beautiful California!
