Memorial Day Weekend 2015 has officially begun! Americans are eagerly awaiting the three-day weekend to enjoy with their special someone.

Whether you’re venturing into the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas, or opting for sunshine and sandy beaches – Kaduceus Vacation Travel Club is here to get your summer started off right with date ideas adaptable to any destination.

Fun in the Sun

There’s nothing sexier than soaking up the sun on a weekend getaway. Memorial Day is the official mark of pool season for much of the United States.

If Las Vegas is on your travel itinerary, you can’t deny a visit to one of the extravagant pool clubs on the Strip. Feeling more beach and less desert? No problem.  Visit a local beach, or book a staycation in your city.

Bonus Tip: Lather on Bain de Soleil for a deep, summer tan that’s sure to leave you beautifully bronze.

Shop til’ you Drop

Regarded as one of the top shopping weekends of the year, Memorial Day is notorious for pre-summer deals and steals. Perhaps you’ll make a date out of exploring Downtown Summerlin, or find yourself fingers interlocked working your way down The Fashion Show Mall. One thing remains certain: do your research prior to hitting the shops.

High-end retailers like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue typically shy away from major holiday sales, while home and fashion boutiques provide the deepest discounts.

Bonus Tip: Stop for a relaxing midday cocktail, it’ll ease the stress of bustling stores and purchasing pricey items.

Dine Al Fresco

Dining al fresco is a must for this holiday weekend! There’s nothing quite like enjoying the outdoors with a fresh meal and good company. Or even hit up local spots, like The Fat Greek, for healthy eats off the strip.

Cruise down the Las Vegas Strip for people-watching, or opt for a relaxing restaurant atop a tower for breathtaking, romantic views of the city.

Barbecue leads as a staple for most on Memorial Day. This year, consider going for something more luxurious like lobster or steak to truly appreciate the holiday with your travel partner!

Bonus Tip: Avoid a wait by making reservations through OpenTable. Be sure to select “outdoor seating!”


Optimize this three-day weekend by catching some rays and hitting up a few boutiques. Polish off with delicious cuisine and a bottle of Veuve, it’s a surefire way to make your honey’s heart melt!
