Memorial Day is coming up and we are all excited to spend the long weekend remembering family members or loved ones who have served. It’s the best time to get together with friends and share memories and experiences. Here’s how to celebrate in Sonoma County.
A Russian River Float
Grab your rafts and hit the water at the riverside beaches in Guerneville or Healdsburg. Nothing says summertime quite like lounging in the sand or taking a dip. Make sure to get there early to claim your parking and river spots, the river will be packed! Don’t have your own equipment? Check one of these awesome spots for a rental: River’s Edge Kayak & Canoe Trips; Burke’s Canoe Trips; You Can Kayak Rentals or Russian River Paddle Boards.
A Backyard Barbecue
Keep it casual by inviting your neighbors, friends, and family over to your house for a barbecue. If you don’t feel like doing the cooking, call up BBQ Spot Catering or Sweet T’s Restaurant in Windsor to fill up your guests with their Southern style eats! Hello spicy ribs and mac and cheese.
