On Memorial Day weekend we barbeque, camp and visit with family. And we have an extra day in our weekend to do so! In Southern Oregon we never quite know what our weather will be, or how often it will change, but we plan our weekend anyway. Who hasn’t checked the weather daily to ensure the sunny weekend forecast you saw yesterday is still there today? It’s the Oregonian way!
Fortunately, The Powers That Be are predicting warm, sunny weather this weekend. Spirits are high and a fun-filled weekend lies ahead.
Now that the weather is cooperating, it’s time to work on step two of your Memorial Day weekend plan. Step two is all about deciding what to do. You want activities the whole family will enjoy. You need to find family friendly places. Luckily there are plenty to choose from!
When’s the last time you played dodge ball while jumping on a trampoline? Never? Now you can! Southern Oregon’s premier indoor trampoline park is fun for all ages. You can jump, dive, duck, bounce and play with the kids, all in safe and friendly environment.
If you’re craving more family time, set your sights on the local bowling alley for open play bowling. Rent your shoes, find a good ball and choose your lane. Bowling is an American classic. There’s nothing more thrilling than watching the ball spin end over end down the lane and crashing into all those pins.
You can’t let Memorial Day weekend pass without an all-American meal. You need burgers, BBQ, beer and milkshakes. Or indulge in a breakfast of biscuits and gravy and a stack of fluffy pancakes. Head out to the beautiful country which surrounds our humble city for a hearty, country meal.
By the time Monday rolls around, you’re exhausted! At least you have this extra day to relax at home with your family. Heat up some leftovers and gather everyone for dinner and movie. Enjoy the closeness and company of your loved ones. It’s a golden way to end your awesome weekend.
