Family Friendly Memorial Day Weekend

by Michelle Dempsey M.S., CPRW

For many of us, Memorial Day Weekend is more than just a time to start the grill, put out the patio furniture, and let the kids start running through the sprinklers.

For many of us across the country, Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of Summer!

I live in south Florida, where it tends to feel like Summer most of the year. But I did grow up in the northeast, where the end of the month of May brought with it anticipation for a long, hot couple of months full of excitement, adventure, and getaways!

Though Memorial Day Weekend, in reality, is a time to memorialize those who have served our country, for many of us, it’s an excuse to embark on our first family adventure for the summer.

Now, if you’ve only got three days to make the most of your time away AND you’re traveling with kids, it makes the most sense to choose a location that is as kid-friendly as your own backyard.

Trust me, you’ll want no hiccups in these three days.

Here are some of the most celebrated kid-friendly resorts for you to spend your Memorial Day Weekend with a smile as big as your kid’s!


Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa

Located on Florida’s sparkling southwest Florida coast, this super kid-friendly resort boasts spacious suites and plenty of ways to make a splash. With a recent $7.1 million waterpark expansion, you and your kids can both enjoy the lazy river, a 2,700 square foot waterfall pool, AND 5,000 square foot adventure pool with corkscrew slide. BONUS: Camp Hyatt is on site to give your kids tons of adventure while you relax!
