What’s Open Memorial Day Weekend?  Plenty to Do on 3-Day Newport Yacht Charter

Posted on

WHAT IS MEMORIAL DAY?

Memorial Day became a federal holiday in the USA in 1971.   This National holiday is a day to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the military.  It is the floating date of the “last Monday in May” to create a 3-day long weekend.

 

WHAT IS OPEN ON MEMORIAL DAY?

Non-essential government offices and banks are closed on Memorial Day.  Most commercial and tourism-related venues are open.  Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial kickoff for the summer vacation season.  MOST public beaches, state and national parks, sports venues, restaurants are open.  In addition, amusement parks, dockside cafes, boardwalks, and public marinas are open, as well.

 

WHAT ABOUT BOATING?

For many boaters, especially those folks in #NewEngland, Memorial Day weekend is also the first opportunity to enjoy warmer weather at sea.  Many private yacht charter vessels arrive in Newport, Rhode Island by late May. They accept 3-night bookings over the Memorial day weekend.

WHAT TO DO ON A NEW ENGLAND YACHT CHARTER?

A long weekend in New England is perfect for boating.  Picture this.  Arrive at noon on Friday in Newport.  Get underway for a short cruise to Martha’s Vineyard. Arrive in time for sunset and cocktails on your superyacht’s sundeck.

THE WEEKEND CONTINUES

Wake up to delicious breakfast on Saturday.  Choose your adventures. For example, explore the islands, swim, or enjoy your yacht’s water toys. For instance, waverunners, stand-up paddleboards, sup’s, glass bottomed kayaks, wakeboards, jet skis, etc.

 

MOVIE ON DECK?  SURE!

Special note:  MANY New England crewed yacht charter vessels have installed projection screens on deck so guests can enjoy an open-air movie night under the stars!  No better way to spend family time…loved ones, snacks, and movies under a beautiful evening sky?  Yes, please!

 

ADDITIONAL YACHT CHARTER ADVENTURES

Sunday begins a short cruise to Nantucket island.  You enjoy this famous island’s lighthouses most of the day.  Rent scooters.  Circle the beautiful island. Visit the whaling museum.  Enjoy a tasting at the #Nantucket #Vineyard and Distillery.  Ah, so much to do!

 

 

Leave Monday for your return to Newport and enjoying all this beautiful seaside town has to offer. Shopping is superb in Newport – from jewelry to art to anything with a #nautical theme.  Most of the shops are open on Memorial Day.

ACTIVE CHARTER GUESTS

For active charterers, we suggest walking or riding a bike along the 3-mile Cliff Walk, which separates Newport’s famous turn-of-the-century mansions from the sea.  Many of the mansions are also open for public tours, including the #Breakers, the #Elms, and #Rosecliff.  These are not to be missed!

ALWAYS REMEMBER

Whatever plans you have for Memorial Day weekend, remember to spend a few moments to be grateful to and remember those who bravely gave their lives in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. #gratitude #heroes #thankyou #memorialday
