Each year, on the last Monday in May, our nation celebrates Memorial Day. The holiday is more than a day off from work. It is observed in honor of our nation's armed service personnel who were killed in wartime. While you enjoy the long weekend, consider taking your vacation at one of the many parks that celebrates and honors the heroes of Memorial Day.

Also be sure to check out national parks that may offer special events during the holiday weekend.
