How to Have the Best Memorial Day in Asheville

How to Have the Best Memorial Day in Asheville


It’s almost Memorial Day! We are so excited here at Asheville Connections, because summer in the mountains is the quintessential lazy summer experience you remember from your childhood. Which is exactly why you need to vacation in one of these cabins in Asheville, NC, with your own family.

Since Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, it is the perfect time for you to take your first vacation of the season. Of course, the fact that Memorial Day is a three day weekend also helps facilitate a vacation since you have to take less time off than during another time of year. Let us show you just why Asheville is the best place to spend your Memorial Day weekend. After all, you want to maximize your time off, making the most memories and having the most fun with your family, right? Which is exactly what Asheville provides for you. 

Rejuvenate With a Vacation

What is one of the absolute best parts of Memorial Day? The fact that it is a three day weekend that is just perfect for devoting yourself and your time to your family and friends. Of course, if you are home over Memorial Day weekend, there are always house projects and multiple to-do lists that will do their best to pull you in and keep you from your family. And we don’t want that. Which is why you need to take a vacation in Asheville, NC. Cabins and other homes perfect for relaxing abound here, where you will not be faced with the bedroom you need to paint or the landscaping you are planning on accomplishing some day. 


Low Key 

Keep Things Low Key

While on vacation, do you have a tendency to pack in as much as possible? Packing in as much rest, relaxation, and fun in each day is an excellent thing to do! But if that means packing in this tour and that event, accompanied by long drives and impatient kids, you are bound to find your patience wearing low rather than being replenished. So this Memorial Day it is time to keep your vacation low key! Do the things you have been longing to do for the last few months, and do them well. Sleep in. Savor a long breakfast with your family while you are all sitting around the table. Literally stop and smell the roses. 

Indulge in Some Celebrating

Of course, a few activities can greatly enhance your vacation. Soak in Asheville’s second annual Art in Bloom to help you quite literally stop and smell the roses. Take your children to make some Memorial Day decorations at the Hands On! children’s gallery. And indulge in some family play with the Memorial Day celebration at Chimney Rock Park which includes a 32-foot climbing tower and Family Annual Encounter.  


Savor the Food 

Savor the Food

What is another delight that we all love indulging in on Memorial Day? Why incredible food and fun backyard barbecues, of course! One of our cabins in Asheville, NC, is the perfect spot from which to savor all of your favorite foodie delights. After all, all of our gorgeous vacation homes include kitchens that are equipped with everything you need to create your favorite potato salad, baked beans, barbecue chicken and ribs, and all the baked goods you delight in. If you prefer to ditch the dishes and head out to eat, Asheville has something to tickle everyone’s palate. Check out this post if you are looking for the perfect breakfast spot and this post if you are longing for some lunch or dinner. 


Remember the Meaning 

Remember the Meaning of the Day

We all know that Memorial Day was established after the Civil War to honor all of those who had died in battle, both during the Civil War itself and in previous wars. Now we continue the this tradition in the present, honoring those who have fallen right up to this year defending our liberties. While we can't thank those who have fallen, Memorial Day is the perfect time to stop and thank the living service men and women for their self-sacrifice and service, before it is too late. 

We can’t wait to see you in Asheville for your Memorial Day vacation! You will have to hurry and book now, though, before it is too late!
