Elite Daily has compiled a list of things you should do this Memorial Day Weekend in order to start your summer off right. Here are 10 solid suggestions:

  1. Go camping. This can be a super cheap and fun way to spend a long weekend.
  2. Make a mini bucket list. Make a short list of the things you've always wanted to do in your city and use Memorial Day weekend to knock them all off.
  3. Have a pool-less pool party. Have your friends come over in bathing suits and make fun fruity drinks as you listen to beach-y tunes.
  4. Get sporty. Snag some day-of tickets in nosebleeds, and head to the ballpark. 
  5. Take a road trip. Hit the road with your boo and take a mini road trip, even just for the day. 
  6. Have a movie theater marathon. Hop into different movies or see the same flick three times in a row--all while enjoying some A/C, Icees, and junior mints.
  7. Hit a winer/brewery tour. This is a super cool way to learn about how wine or beer is made and to taste a bunch of different types. 
  8. Go phoneless. Turning your phones off for the whole three days can be a great way to live in the moment and to really connect. 
  9. Host a fancy BBQ. Hit a cheese shop and a nearby farmers market and host a fancy barbecue with local ingredients. 
  10. Honor the armed forces. Spend the day volunteering with veterans.
