Memorial Day Weekend is great! It's the first long weekend of the spring and summer season. The kids are finally out of school and everyone is ready to BBQ or get out of town. If you are looking for something to do other than camping and yard work, check out our top 5 things to do on Memorial weekend if you live in Twin Falls.

1. Go To Vegas - Why not? It's only 498 miles. If you leave Thursday night you will have 2 full days in Vegas.

2. Check out Blue Heart Springs in Hagerman. If you have flat water kayaks or canoes you can paddle to Blue Heart. If you want to eat, drink and relax take the 1000 Springs Dinner Tour to Blue Heart.

3. Spend The Weekend in Boise -  Boise offers great golfing, swimming, river activities, climbing, hiking, entertainment, shopping, etc. Spring time is one of my favorite times to visit Boise. The Farmers Market is great. It's the perfect time of year to see a show at The Idaho Shakespere Festival. And it's only 134 miles from Twin Falls.

4. Go Fishing! Idaho has endless fishing spots.Rather you are steelhead fishing, sturgeon fishing or just fishing at the Filer ponds...fishing can be a great way to spend a weekend.

5. Honor Your Lost Loved Ones. While Memorial Day is celebrated with BBQ's, camp trips, outdoor activities, vacations etc. Most of us will take time to honor our lost loved ones and our fallen soldiers by visiting local cemetery's or The Idaho Veterans State Cemetery.
