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

Ah, Memorial Day. It’s that three-day weekend where everyone heads out-of-town, wears white pants and starts up the BBQ...the beginning of summer! While Rancho Cordova is perfect for getting outdoors and enjoying your first warm three-day weekend in the sun, it’s also a great place to remember the real reason Memorial Day is observed: to honor the men and women who have served our country. So, even if you may be looking for that perfect out-of-town getaway, this is a place you can enjoy the outdoors AND take a moment and observe Memorial Day for what it really is: a remembrance.


Rancho Cordova is surrounded with opportunities to honor fallen soldiers! Just east of Rancho Cordova is the historic city of Roseville, which features the Veteran’s Memorial Wall and War Memorial. And minutes away in Sacramento, you have the opportunity to visit the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It’s a remarkable chance to come face-to-face with history.

Warm weather and spring activities

Now here’s just another one of our favorite reasons why you should visit Rancho Cordova for Memorial Day: the warm weather.
