TakeTours is proud to announce their new selection of tours for Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day weekend marks the true beginning of travel season in the United States, as travelers all over the world begin to make their summertime travel plans. TakeTours is offering a combination of sightseeing tours and multi-day vacations, one of the most comprehensive collections of Memorial Day trips.
Memorial Day falls on May 27 in 2013, and creates a three-day weekend during which Americans and international visitors alike can enjoy the many beautiful sights and attractions that the country has to offer. The warm weather that generally coincides with the end of May has earned Memorial Day weekend the title “the unofficial start of summer.” Although summer doesn't officially start until the solstice at the end of June, the extended break and celebratory atmosphere of the holiday mark the beginning of the summer travel season in the United States.
Originally established as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a U.S. federal holiday celebrating the sacrifices made by men and women in the United States Armed Forces who have lost their lives in combat. The American flag is flown proudly on Memorial Day in cities across the country and is a prominent symbol for the holiday. This day of remembrance is often celebrated with family reunions, patriotic parades, picnics, and barbeques. Memorial Day celebrations are uniquely experienced at famous American sights. Crowds will flock to the American/Canadian border at Niagara Falls for their Memorial Day fireworks display. The Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park also site Memorial Day Weekend as one of their most popularly traveled weekends.
TakeTours' Memorial Day weekend tours feature the most popular American destinations, and are the perfect way to celebrate the holiday with family and friends. Special holiday weekend departures to Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Orlando theme parks are still available for a limited time.
