Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is officially a day of remembrance for those who lost their lives while in the U.S. armed services. Unofficially, Memorial Day kicks off the summer season and there’s no better way to take advantage of the long weekend (May 25 – 27, 2013) and warm weather than with a visit to a Timbers Resorts boutique hotel or luxury residence club.
The classic Memorial Day activity is, of course, a good old-fashioned American barbeque. Plenty of Timbers properties — Esperanza Resort, One Steamboat Place and Dancing Bear Aspen to name a few — offer the opportunity to do your own grilling. The private club Mayacama in nearby Sonoma is the hot spot for families with a Saturday, Memorial Day Barbecue at the Swim & Tennis, with food and activities to keep parents and children of all ages entertained. The same weekend, the resort also hosts the Mayacama Cup Match Play Championship, making it the ultimate time for golfers to pay a visit.
Finally, just because Memorial Day is an American holiday, it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate abroad. It’s the perfect time to head to Castello di Casole in Tuscany where you can raise a glass at the Visconti Cocktail Party, thrown in honor of the the period when Mr. Luchino Visconti was producing famous films and hosting epic cocktail parties at the estate. Throw back a classic cocktail or try the weekly mixology.
