It’s finally here. After a long dry spell with no 3 day weekends Memorial Day and its long weekend of freedom has arrived and this year you are doing it up right. No tent camping at your local campgrounds for you and your family in 2022, this year you are on the road to Smith Mountain Lake and a stay in one of our Vacation Rentals Smith Mountain Lake holiday hideaways! This guide to the adventures you can have on your Smith Mountain Lake Memorial Day weekend in Virginia and the comforts you will enjoy will ensure that this holiday is one you will never forget!
The Reason for the Holiday
Although we tend to look at Memorial Day as the kick off to summer adventures, it is also a day meant to pay homage to those who have sacrificed everything and there’s no better place to do so than at the D-Day Memorial in Bedford. Built to commemorate a town who lost many of its young men, the simple majesty of the Memorial itself never fails to impress. On May 30th, from 11 AM until noon, another local hero of the Vietnam war will talk about his experiences as a Prisoner of War providing a compelling representation of not just his sacrifices, but of all the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform all over the nation.
A Little Something to Remember Your Time in Smith Mountain Lake
Sometimes our favorite part of any vacation is the opportunities we take to enjoy the shops and stores in the region we are visiting and on Memorial Day weekend in Virginia, local sales make the adventures even more fun! Pick up a cute new outfit at Comfort and Joy Clothing and Accessories in Moneta, choose some tchotchkes for your home at Cottage Gate in Hardy, fall in love with the talented artists who make their homes here in the area with a visit to JBohnBishop Mercantile, also in Moneta, where their wares fill the shelves.
