Not only does Memorial Day remind us to recognize and honor those fallen soldiers who protected and served our country (Thank you!), but it also serves as a kickoff to summer.
With the sun shining and the birds singing, it motivates us to get outdoors and enjoy fun activities like these over Memorial Day Weekend.
- Begin your weekend at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial. Take a hike through the Trail of Twelve Stones. Learn about the Lincoln family’s lifestyle at the Living Historical Farm. Then, stop by the Visitor’s Center to pick up a souvenir. There is lots to see indoors and outdoors as you make special memories at Indiana’s first National Park.
- Lincoln State Park is right across the street from Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial. Take another opportunity to trace the steps of Abraham Lincoln and reflect on what life was like during the fourteen years young Abe spent growing up in southern Indiana. Camp, swim, and hike the very land he walked. You may even make some of the same memories Abe made as he explored the area.
- Visit with Santa Claus at the Santa Claus Christmas Store. Browse thousands of ornaments, explore a massive selection of lights, nativities, and much more! Even find unique gifts for those hard-to-buy-for people.
- What’s a holiday without some family fun? And, what’s better than free soft drinks, free sunscreen, free parking, and free Wi-Fi? Enjoy all of those perks as well as admission to both parks when you purchase tickets to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari.
