Kick off the summer AND explore the Bay Area suburbs at this Memorial Day Weekend events!

No matter where you are in your suburban search, Memorial Day weekend is a great time to get out and explore the Bay Area suburbs. Why? Because people love kicking off summer—and these events, parades and community experiences are a great way to do just that.

And besides, once school lets out and summer starts, towns start to look a lot different—kids head to camp, families start vacationing and people spread out to the beaches, pools and clubs dotting the ‘burbs.
