Before all else, Memorial Day is an American holiday: a day of remembrance for everyone who has died serving in the American armed forces.
However, as the weather warms up many will use the long holiday weekend to head outside for Memorial Day parades, barbecues, and of course...to the beach. Because of this mass exodus outdoors, the long Memorial Day weekend also welcomes the unofficial start of summer for many Americans.
If you can't make it to a coast to soak up the sunshine this weekend, fear not. Our drone pilots have rounded up some of the best beach aerials so you can get a taste of clear skies & crashing waves. The best part? These aerials are all fully interactive: simply click through below to explore the stunning scenery of each panorama.
