Why Rancho Cordova is a Great Place to Visit Memorial Day Weekend

Ah, Memorial Day! The three-day weekend when everyone heads out-of-town, wears white, and starts up the BBQ. Cheers to the beginning of summer!


Visit Rancho Cordova to get outdoors and enjoy your three-day weekend in the sun. When looking for that perfect out-of-town getaway, it's important to remember the real reason Memorial Day is observed: to honor the men and women who have served our country. Rancho Cordova allows you to enjoy the beautiful weather and take a moment to observe Memorial Day.


Rancho Cordova is surrounded by opportunities to honor fallen soldiers. The Roseville Historical Society features the Veteran’s Memorial Wall and War Memorial, and minutes away in Sacramento, you can visit the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial. What a remarkable chance to come face-to-face with history!

Warm Weather & Spring Activities

Just another one of our favorite reasons to visit Rancho Cordova for Memorial Day: the warm weather! The average weather is around 80 degrees, which is perfect for ceremonies, picnic lunches, water activities, hiking, and more. There are so many things to do in Rancho Cordova. After spending the day visiting memorials and eating great food, hit the water. We recommend visiting the Sacramento State Aquatic Center. The center offers activities like SUP (Stand Up Paddling), kayaking, and canoeing. Make it a complete getaway by relaxing at Folsom Lake with a picnic, jet skiing, sailing, and more!
