Affordable Ways to Spend your Memorial Day Weekend

May 14, 2019

Enjoy Memorial Day weekend this year without spending a lot. There are plenty of places to go and things to do near your affordable apartment this Memorial Day weekend. This holiday is the perfect time to reflect and appreciate time with family and friends. Whether you decide to have a quick weekend getaway, take a day trip, or stay near home, here are some great affordable ways to spend Memorial Day.


Head to the Beach

Many see Memorial Day weekend as the beginning of summer, and there’s no better way to celebrate than going to the beach. Bethany Beach and Ocean City are sure to be bustling with vacationers for the holiday. These two beaches are only two to three hours away from your affordable apartment, making them do-able for a day trip. Or choose to rent a house and stay for the weekend. Plan ahead and get a place to stay with family or friends to make the weekend less costly.


Explore DC

Use this extra time off to take that trip into DC that you’ve always wanted, but never seem to find the time for. There is so much in DC to do that you can make the day whatever you want it to be. Spend the day window shopping in Georgetown, rent a canoe or kayak at Key Bridge Boathouse, see the sights and have a picnic on the National Mall, or hit up some rooftop bars to lounge in the sun with a cocktail. Make it a day trip or splurge for a hotel room to have two great days in the city.


Visit the Guinness Open Gate Brewery and Barrel House

Haven’t had time to visit the Guinness Open Gate Brewery near Baltimore yet? This long weekend is the perfect time to go! Tour the brewery, grab a bite to eat at the taproom or restaurant, and drink some Guinness. While you’re there try one (or more) of their experimental beers brewed on-site. The brewery also has a great outdoor space with plenty of seating where you can enjoy the warm weather. Visit the brewery on Saturday or Sunday to enjoy weekend brunch in their 1817 restaurant from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Stay Local

Have a relaxing Memorial Day weekend with family and friends by staying home. Catch some sun at the local pool, have a picnic at a nearby park, or plan a BBQ or dinner party with friends and family.


With these affordable excursions, we hope you will have a great Memorial Day weekend! But before you head off to celebrate, stop by to tour our affordable apartments.
