WASHINGTON, DC

Washington, DC: Memorial Day Remembrance

May 25, 2015

 Memorial Day often gets used as a fun day off, the first real day of summer, full of pool openings and cook-out parties but Memorial Day is also a very sad day for families all over the United States and around the world. Memorial Day is dedicated to the men and women that bravely protect the United States through their Military Services and those who have passed in their pursuit to protect lives.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials to pay respect to those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave at the National Cemetery or visit any of the plentiful statues and exhibits around the National Mall. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.

 During Memorial Day weekend the Washingtonians migrate to the surrounding beaches in flocks creating crazy traffic. As tourists defend in on the National Capital packed in tour busses and parent chaperoned field trips begin flooding downtown. Eleven of the 19 Smithsonian Institution museums and galleries are at the National Mall in Washington D.C.,they are all free and allow to see so many amazing art, culture science and history. I had fun squeezing in the sights one last time before I leave Washington. The fireworks and parades commence and it is certainly a great tribute.

  Visit a rooftop pool party and cook-out, I will certainly carry some of these American celebrations with me to Europe. Can’t wait to have a few friends over for the 4th of July aka Independence Day!

    You have some lovely photos here, and I appreciate your acknowledgement of the TRUE meaning behind Memorial Day! I hope DC is treating you well. I recognize so many of the spots from your photos, I think even down to the truffle tots! Were you in DuPont for those?

    Hope your week goes splendidly :)

    Great photos! I went to D.C. back in 2009 and it was a cool trip. I liked seeing all the touristy stuff like Hudson Bay, Lincoln Memorial Monument, the Monument, The White House, and more! Beautiful city… downtown anyway… Cute dress, too!
