Total Point ER’s Guide to an Epic Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, marking the unofficial start of summer and a perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, and have some fun! At Total Point, we believe in fostering a healthy balance between work and leisure. In the spirit of this exciting long weekend, we’ve put together a list of engaging and enjoyable activities to make your Memorial Day weekend one to remember!


Backyard Barbecue Bonanza:

Gather your friends and family for a fantastic backyard barbecue extravaganza! Fire up the grill, marinate some juicy burgers and hot dogs, and savor the mouthwatering aromas. Don’t forget the classic sides like corn on the cob, potato salad, and refreshing watermelon slices. Add some fun lawn games like cornhole or badminton to keep everyone entertained. It’s the perfect way to kick off the summer season with good food, great company, and lots of laughter.


Beach Blanket Bingo:

If you’re fortunate enough to live near a beach or already have a trip planned, why not head out for some sun, sand, and surf? Spend the day building sandcastles, taking a dip in the ocean, and soaking up the sun’s rays. Remember to bring plenty of sunscreen, beach towels, and beach games like volleyball or Frisbee. Don’t forget the picnic basket filled with delicious snacks and cold drinks! 


Nature Escape: Camping Adventure:

For an outdoor excursion that doesn’t involve the ocean, why not plan a camping trip over the long weekend? Find a picturesque campsite, set up your tents, and embrace the beauty of nature. Go hiking, fishing, or simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings while sitting around a crackling campfire. Share stories, roast marshmallows for s’mores, and marvel at the star-filled night sky. Camping is a fantastic way to disconnect from the daily grind and reconnect with loved ones and the natural world.


Movie Marathon Madness:

There’s nothing wrong with staying put and bringing the fun to you. Set up a movie marathon with your favorite films or explore a new series you’ve been meaning to watch. Create a comfy viewing area with blankets, pillows, and a big bowl of popcorn. Buy, rent, or borrow a projector to shine the movie on a blank wall for the big-screen experience. You can even turn it into a themed movie night, like a Marvel Cinematic Universe marathon or a classic movie throwback. Don’t forget the movie snacks and drinks so it really feels like you’re in the theater!


Explore Local Attractions:

Take advantage of the long weekend to explore the attractions in your local area. Visit museums, art galleries, or historical landmarks that you haven’t had the chance to see before. Discover hidden gems, immerse yourself in culture, and learn something new. Check out local event listings for special Memorial Day weekend festivals, concerts, or outdoor markets that may be happening near you. It’s a fantastic opportunity to support local businesses and embrace the vibrancy of your community.


Remember, while having fun during Memorial Day weekend, it’s crucial to prioritize your health and safety. Stay hydrated, apply sunscreen regularly, and listen to your body’s cues to avoid overexertion or exhaustion. If you’re headed to the beach, mountains, or the woods, pack appropriate protective gear and stay informed about potential hazards.


But above all, take a moment to recognize the true meaning behind the celebration of Memorial Day Weekend: Honoring the lives of those who sacrificed their lives for this great country. This weekend, we honor and salute our service men and women. 🇺🇸
