Memorial Day weekend is upon us.The unofficial beginning of summer, despite when the calendar says it technically begins. Everyone is searching for the nearest body of water to cool off and enjoy a long weekend with friends and family. As much as we love to use a long weekend to get away for a bit, there’s something to be said for making your own backyard a destination in and of itself. No fighting traffic, long lines, or crowds. You could just open your back door to enjoy your own personal paradise. You used the space for entertaining guests or as a quite place to unwind at the end of a long week.

With this in mind we decided to share a few of our favorite backyard entertaining areas. They range from simple to palatial but all offer their own unique charm. Maybe we can find some inspiration to make our own outdoor entertaining areas a reality.
