Make the Most of a Shores-Style Memorial Day

memorial-day-rememberStart wrapping up your workweek now, Shores peeps — because summer “unofficially” begins this weekend! Yep, Memorial Day is Monday and that makes this weekend extra long and extra fun with a lot going on around town and right here at home. Can’t decide what you want to do? Well here are some tried and true options that we highly recommend. 

Picnic or BBQ at Shores

You just so happen to have a snazzy, two-acre park just steps from your apartment at Shores, and that park has plenty of room for a grassy picnic, a barbecue and even some summer-time activities like badminton or Frisbee!

Be the Beach Bum

Sure, we may not be immersed in the balmy summer temps yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t head to Mother’s Beach, Venice or even Malibu for a picnic spread and a relaxing walk on the beach.

Cruise with the Bubbly

Make a reservation on Hornblower’s Memorial Day Champagne Cruise on Saturday for a two-hour boat ride, a major buffet and free-flowing champagne. This option is always serious fun.

Take In a Sky Terrace Sunset

After a day on the beach, or the cruise, or the park — grab a bottle of vino or some summertime Sangria and head up to the Sky Terrace to catch that stunning harbor sunset.

Swim in Your Awesome Shores Pool

Yes, we know…. the 80˚ weather isn’t quite here yet — but hello, our pool is heated, big and spectacular. So really, who need the hot temps to have a great time?

Play Some Tennis

Just up the beach in Santa Monica you’ll find a ton of public tennis courts ready for you to reserve. What better way to spend Memorial Day Weekend than serving up your best Nadal (or Serena) impression? You can reserve your court right here.

Whatever you do— have a great Memorial Day Weekend, everyone! And on Monday, remember what the holiday is really about and take a moment to commemorate our fallen heroes.
