Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer. We can't wait to hit the water, so we rounded up the perfect activities for the long weekend. Enjoy warmer weather by spending some time outside with your friends and family. Plan a float trip, quick getaway to a popular Midwest city or find a local celebration. From barbecues to fireworks, there's something for everyone.
