Besides being the unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day is a time to reflect and remember the men and women who have fought and died for our country. It’s a great weekend to spend quality time with your family and to get out to enjoy the warm weather. Below are some ways to honor the holiday with your loved ones.

Boston Common

Every year the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund organizes a tribute of planted flags throughout the Boston Common. Tens of thousands of American flags are spread throughout the Common to honor of every Massachusetts service member killed in action since the Revolutionary War. The sight is truly amazing.
