For a lot of reasons, Memorial Day is one of the most important holidays of the year, not only here in San Diego, CA but in the rest of the country, too. Obviously we use this national holiday to remember the people who died while serving for the United States armed services – something that is incredibly important in a country as patriotic as ours, but it also marks the end (or near-end) of the school year for most of our country’s schools and universities, which we celebrate with a three-day weekend.
Those of who live in San Diego, CA are lucky to have a lot going on during Memorial Day Weekend, both in terms of leisure and remembrance. We suggest hopping into your Honda Civic or Honda Pilot later this month to pay your respects to those that gave their lives to protect our freedoms.
In fact, there are a number of military museums and memorials in the area, including the USS Midway Museum, which allows visitors onboard the decommissioned USS Midway aircraft carrier, as well as the San Diego Air & Space Museum, which boasts aircrafts from all of the major U.S. wars after the invention of human flight.
Those in search of memorials will find plenty, including the Veterans Museum and Memorial Center in Balboa Park, the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial in La Jolla, CA, and the “Greatest Generation Collection” in Embarcadero, CA.
All of these pay tribute to the soldiers who sacrificed so much for the way of life we all enjoy so much, and of course for those just looking to make the most of a three-day weekend in San Diego, CA, there are multitudes of restaurants, bars, events and attractions worth visiting while behind the wheel of your Certified Honda automobile.
Enjoy the weekend, and make sure you spend some time to remember the people for whom the day was created!
