We've partnered with
Starbucks to give you the inspiration you need to crush Memorial Day weekend, whether you have big plans or not. ®
Since so many vacationers take the opportunity to go out of town, staying home for Memorial Day weekend can feel pretty lonely. Just because you don't have a beach house or lakeside cabin to go to doesn't mean that you have to give up on Summer fun, though. Here's how to make the most of Memorial Day weekend, even if you don't have any plans.
Put on Your Favorite Summer Outfit
Everything is more fun when you're wearing something you love. Celebrate the first long weekend of Summer by busting out your absolute favorite t-shirt, sundress, or pair of shorts.

Picnic in the Park
Grab a blanket and some snacks, then head to the closest park for a picnic. Go all out with a red-and-white checkered tablecloth, picnic basket, and gourmet spread, or just bring a sandwich and some chips for a more low-key affair.

Go For a Swim
It wouldn't be Memorial Day weekend without an opportunity to wear your swimsuit. Find the nearest beach, lake, or pool for a day of paddling around with a few friends.

Lounge in the Sun With a Magazine
One of Summer's purest pleasures is soaking up the sunshine. Find a comfortable chair, open up a glossy magazine, and enjoy the warm weather. Just remember to use sunscreen!

Invite Friends Over For a Barbecue
Even if you live in a tiny studio apartment, you can still host a barbecue — just bring the party indoors. No grill? No problem. As long as you have burgers, hot dogs, and other Summer fare, your guests won't mind.

Have a Water Balloon Fight
You don't have to buy tickets to a water park to have some splashy fun. Instead, invite some friends over for a water balloon battle! It's the perfect way to indulge your competitive side and cool off at the same time.
