Memorial Day Weekend Ideas



Poolside Chillin!

So it seems as if the ever elusive thing called Spring is finally allowing us the privilege of being in her company just in time for Memorial Day!

If your like most of the country, this is a time to meet up with family and friends that you may not have seen over the last few months due to an extended hibernation, light up a grill and spend some time outdoor's during your extended weekend!

In the spirit of Memorial Day, I have gathered a few ideas that will hopefully encourage you to load up the car and get out of town for a few hours or even better, overnight!

Cedar Point Amusement Park


Seriously, what's a no brainer when it comes to good weather, family, fun and entertainment? An Amusement Park and if you know Cedar Point than you know this multifaceted resort destination has something for the whole family!

Debuting this year is Steel Vengeance, the worlds tallest, fastest, freakiest steel wood hybrid coaster ever! Also there are several new additions to the park including a first (in my book), create your own custom Cotton Candy factory!

With 2 seperate kids play areas, live shows, rides from mild to wild, a beautiful beach and expanded boardwalk, Cedar Point truly has something for everyone!

Make a weekend of it and stay at one of Cedar Points 3 hotel properties including the newly expanded Hotel Breakers located mere steps from the park right on historic Lake Erie! Or rent a cabin, cottage or delux RV site with your own firepit and lounge chairs!

This weekend, active and retired service memebers get in for free and their family enjoys reduced admission!

O yea, as a bonus, servicemembers get free admission to Cedar Point Shores waterpark!

Butler County DONUT TRAIL


Yes. You. Read. That. Correctly! A Donut Trail!

Located in Butler County, Ohio, located off I-75 about 30 minutes south of Dayton and 20 minutes north of Cincinnati, home to Ikea, Top Golf, Papadeaux Seafood Kitchen and many other great activities (we will have the pleasure of covering this summer).

The Trail consists of 12 shops in which you must visit 11 of. At each stop you get your passport stamped in which you will redeem at the end for a pretty cool T-Shirt and bragging rights!

This is a fun idea for the family or just that donut loving person you know and eh, what better excuse to taste all different kinds of donuts and get some free merch!?!

Do us a favor however, dont tell Homer or there may not be any left once you arrive!
