Did you know that Presidents’ Day is officially referred to as George Washington’s Birthday? The term Presidents’ Day began after the holiday was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which was an attempt to create more three day weekends. The ironic thing about George Washington’s birthday is that it is always on the third Monday in February…not possible. Not possible to have your birthday on a floating date because the day would change, yearly.
Anyways…another 3-day weekend is approaching and we want to help you prepare and get out of town. Last year was a drag and you had no idea about the 3-day weekend until 5pm on Friday. No, not this year!
Celebrate George Washington’s birthday in style and head to Los Angeles to check out the streaking Los Angeles Clippers. Or better yet, get out of the polar vortex in the Eastcoast and head to Miami for Raul Di Blasio. Or if you live or are traveling to one of these great cities listed below, check out these great events over Presidents Day weekend, February 15 -17, 2014. Just do it, GW would have done the same.
