Memorial Day honors U.S. soldiers that have died while in military service.

It is a holiday many of us spend doing family activities like backyard BBQs or enjoying a nice evening out with friends and family honoring those who have lost their lives for the great freedoms that we enjoy in the United States.

Events and activities on Memorial Day in the St. Pete / Clearwater area include camping, fishing and golfing. Want to do something at night in Pinellas County on Memorial Day? Check out the St Petersburg & Clearwater Nightlife Guide or the St Petersburg & Clearwater Restaurants Guide.

Regardless of your plans, be sure to salute a veteran or somebody in the military this weekend… and thank them for their service to the country.
