A three-day weekend is the perfect excuse to get out of town! As much as we love San Francisco and San Diego (they are the best places to study English!) it is also great to escape the cities and explore some of the other parts of California. The following are some suggestions for our English students to plan the perfect Memorial Day weekend.
It is Memorial Day “tradition” to spend the weekend outside, typically with water sports or in nature. So make sure that wherever you go, you bring your bathing suit!
Memorial Day Weekend Getaways
Summer is just around the corner, but during Memorial Day weekend, the weather temperatures are perfect. If you are studying English in San Francisco, check out our article on Hiking in San Francisco: many of the hiking trails are part of larger campgrounds. Other suggestions include a weekend in beautiful Bodega Bay.
Have you ever thought of Canoeing the Russian River? It is a great opportunity to see some of the more secluded parts of the beautiful Napa Valley! Students at CISL San Diego might be interested in Kayaking in La Jolla. Bright fish, leopard sharks, and rays are often spotted, and the tour companies allow access to the caves that are along the cliffs. Mission Bay also offers kayak rentals and the opportunity to paddle-board or sail.
We would like to wish all of our students a happy, fun, and safe Memorial Day weekend!
