published on May 23, 2011 by .

Memorial Day is almost here, but you wouldn’t know it with the cold rain-snow-hail weather that is still plaguing much of the country. The solution? Head South! Plan a timeshare rental vacation by taking a look at these Top Memorial Day Travel Destinations suggested by the editors at Southern Living magazine. Their suggestions also include the best place for shopping, and activity and sight-seeing ideas.

  1. Hilton Head Island, SC
    “Beautiful ocean views and a relaxed, take-it-easy atmosphere make Hilton Head the perfect Memorial Day Destination.”

    What to Do: It’s even easy to beat Memorial Day traffic woes on this getaway by renting a bicycle and making use of the 100 miles of cycling trails that criss-cross the island. Or rent a kayak and tour the South Carolina coast. Guided kayak tours come with paddling equipment, lessons, and, of course, the kayak.

    Where to Shop: The only enclosed shopping mall on the island, The Mall at Shelter Cove features all the big fashion names you could hope for from Talbots to Banana Republic, plus it has a fun nautically-themed children’s play area.

    Take a look at these Hilton Head timeshare rentals.

  2. Gatlinburg, TN
    In this area you have Gatlinburg – the gateway to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park (so glorious in its spring blooming finery that its also called the Wildflower National Park) – and Pigeon Forge with exciting Dollywood.

    Where to Shop: Stop by the new shopping development of Walden’s Landing on the main drag of Pigeon Forge. Designed in the style of an old town square, it offers tree-lined sidewalks, fountains, and benches, as well as 26 specialty shops and a 36-hole miniature golf course

    What to Do: Impressive Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies has the world’s largest underwater aquarium tunnel, a 340-foot moving walkway that transports you under 700,000 gallons of water filled with swimming sharks.

  3. The Florida Keys
    Just the name conjures up visions of “sun-drenched days, turquoise water, Jimmy Buffett songs, Key lime pie, and laid-back living.” Take a trip to the southernmost point of the United States for a whiff of the Caribbean, a real taste of the good life.

    Where to Shop: The spectacular colors of the Keys always conjures up visions of art, so explore KW Light Gallery gallery in Key West, where Sharon Wells exhibits her famous colorful paintings and popular photographs of area houses and flowers.

    What to Do: Take a leisurely and inspiring tour of the mansion and gardens of the Ernest Hemingway Home &. Museum. The resident family of six-toed felines has become almost as famous as the home’s owner himself.
