Memorial Day marks a time to remember and honor those who lost their lives while serving in the armed forces, and a time to be grateful for what those service members sacrificed protecting. What better way to honor the armed forces Memorial Day weekend by taking your family on a trip in your F-150, practicing gratitude and spending a quality family weekend together. The Ford F-150 is the favorite vehicle of America’s military and was named “the most popular vehicle among America’s active and retired military service members” this past January, so there’s no better vehicle for this particular weekend.
So, you may ask, where should you set off to in your F-150 this Memorial Day weekend? Here are a few ideas to get you planning.
- Take the family to a Memorial Day parade, or take the family to see extended family that you perhaps don’t get to see as often as you’d like. Three-day weekends are hard to come by, so you won’t want to let it go to waste.
- Head to a local park, nature reserve, or beach to have a Memorial Day picnic or barbeque. You can easily pack all the food and outdoor necessities in your truck bed. If you want to travel off the beaten path a bit, luckily the F-150 has the all the off-roading capabilities you need, transporting your family safely and soundly.
- Turn your weekend barbeque or picnic into a camping trip to kick off the summer. More likely than not, your kids will shortly be on summer break or already are, and a camping trip is the perfect way to usher in the summer months. For a bit of extra fun, lug some kayaks in your truck bed to enjoy while camping, or haul the family trailer to your favorite campground for the weekend.
From our Corwin Ford of Springfield family to yours, have a memorable Memorial Day.
