Memorial Day weekend is, arguably, one of the most anticipated holiday weekends of the year since it signals the unofficial start of summer. In fact, one in three Americans will be traveling over Memorial Day weekend, and most will head to either the city or the ocean. In honor of the glorious summer days to come, Previews Inside Out couldn’t help but take a look at some of the most popular Memorial Day destinations and the luxury properties that are waiting to be discovered nearby.
3750 Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89158
Las Vegas is the nation’s most popular Memorial Day vacation destination—and rightfully so. It offers the perfect mix of everything—entertainment, gambling, warmth and unadulterated desert drama. This fully furnished, Asian-inspired penthouse allows you to enjoy all of the above with incredible city views and luxury amenities galore: Thermador, Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances.
401 North Wabash Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611
The Windy City has traditionally been a top Memorial Day getaway…and why not? The weather is still pleasant in May, plus there’s plenty of shopping, entertainment and Memorial Day celebrations to keep you busy for three memorable days. Luxury hotels abound in the city, but if you really want to splurge, we have the ultimate residence for you: a 14,260 square-foot penthouse in Trump Tower. Here is all you need to know: it’s the highest residence in the western hemisphere at 1178 feet above ground, 360 degree views of the city and lake from floor to ceiling 16-foot high windows throughout.
2507 Foxhall Road NW
Washington, DC 20007
There is something particularly patriotic about traveling to our nation’s capitol for Memorial Day. When you’ve tired of touring the Smithsonian and Lincoln Memorial, you can simply retreat back to your ultra private vacation home just north of Georgetown. This five-level, eight-bedroom abode has it all…the prestige of being named the 2013 DC Design House and even two kitchens for gourmet cooking and catering!
10169 Tavistock Rd
Orlando, FL 32827
If Las Vegas is the playground for adults, then Orlando is the playground for families. Children are forever entertained at Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, Universal Studios and Seaworld, while affluent parents have the distractions of world-class golf, shopping and spas. Those who eventually grow tired of the check-in/check-out hotel routine may find a permanent residence in this lakefront property set on Buck Lake. Set in Lake Nona Estates and featuring a private tropical boardwalk leading to a boathouse, the elegantly appointed Mediterranean rests on approximately 1.5 acres and features five bedrooms, five full baths and three partial baths in 10,122 square feet.
164 Sea Cliff Ave
San Francisco, CA. 94121
You won’t need to leave your heart in San Francisco—especially if you own this spectacular Sea Cliff home. Originally designed by architect Albert Farr in 1920, the four-level historic home offers 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 2 half bathrooms and a prime location near local beaches, private schools, museums, golf course, parks and of course, the Golden Gate Bridge. The postcard-worthy views from the Marin headlands to the Golden Gate Bridge with Baker Beach in the foreground will make every Memorial Day weekend (and all weekends, for that matter) an experience to remember.
Yerba Santa Dr.
San Diego, CA. 92115
Beaches, entertainment and one of the most famous zoos in North America. San Diego has long existed as a desirable weekend destination and vacation home mecca. It would be easy to see why the future owner of this masterfully crafted estate may not want to ever leave. Built in the tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic architecture, the estate is a home after an entertainer’s spirit–a 1,600 square-foot atrium and a balcony with enough room for an orchestra, an elegant master suite with two full baths, three chef’s kitchen, two formal dining rooms, gym, sauna, pool, two spas, guest house, a competition tennis court that seats 300 and lushly guarded grounds with 12 waterfalls, streams and fountains.
