With Memorial Day just around the corner, vacation-goers across the nation are gearing up for a weekend to celebrate those who have made the sacrifice to serve our country in the armed forces. In fact, AAA reports that over 34 million Americans will be driving over 50 miles this weekend for a total of 38 million American travelers over Memorial Day weekend! With so much traveling, ilumi is here to save the day with a few tips to make the most out of your Memorial Day celebrations!
- Most importantly, remember why we have the long weekend in the first place! Remember those who sacrificed their time and lives to serve our country and allow us the freedom to celebrate.
- If you’re traveling by car, make sure to check out your car’s vitals before hitting the highway. The last thing you want is for your car to break down in the middle of nowhere!
- Make sure to take care of things at home before leaving. Use ilumi’s Vacation Experience to manage your lighting while you’re out of town, and ask a neighbor or close friend to look after your pets and retrieve your mail.
- Have a travel buddy! Driving long distance can be quite mundane and tiring. Bring a travel buddy to keep you company or take over driving duties should you get tired.
- Bring the party! The ilumi Music Sync experience can take your Memorial Day party to the next level. With Bluetooth technology, the ilumi Smartbulb can be set up anywhere with power and an Edison socket! No hub required. Don’t forget the burgers and beer!
- Plan your driving times with traffic in mind. Driving at off-peak hours can significantly shorten the duration of your trip!
- Bring a couple of your ilumi with you! Add amazing atmosphere to any BBQ, or eliminate the need for a wake-up call with a Denver sunrise to wake up to. No one likes alarms, especially on vacation!
