Book your Memorial Day Weekend in Florida

If you are planning a Memorial Day getaway, why not have a Memorial Day weekend in Florida?

Memorial Day is a time of reflection and an opportunity for a long weekend. Some take advantage of this holiday for a quick getaway vacation or just down-time with the family.

If you’re looking for a way to do both, then a true island-style vacation in Southwest Florida is the answer.

The islands of Sanibel and Captiva have some of the most luxurious beaches in the country. When you stay at one of Royal Shell’s accommodations on or near the beach, it’s hard not to enjoy your Memorial Day weekend in Florida.

Southwest Florida Memorial Day Events & History

Memorial Day is celebrated throughout the United States on the last Monday in May to honor the men and women who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. armed forces. It became an official federal holiday in 1971.

Many cities throughout Southwest Florida host Memorial Day events to honor lives lost during combat. The city of Bonita Springs will host a Memorial Day Ceremony from 9 a.m. to noon at Riverside Park.


Family Reunion on a Beautiful Barrier Island

If a 3-day stay on or near the beach sounds like a great Memorial Day weekend in Florida, why not stay for a 4th night for free? Sanibel and Captiva Islands are home to some of the world’s most unique shells, and they make a great backdrop for a family reunion. 


Spend Memorial Day Weekend on the Beach

Sanibel Island and Bonita Springs are popular Memorial Day Weekend in Florida destinations because of their white sand beaches and turquoise- blue-green water. Rumor has it that the water even looks clearer on the islands, and the sunsets are out of this world. The best part is that they never look the same twice.
