Memorial Day Weekend 2007


I'm a 23 yr old guy from NJ and I'm thinking about coming down to SPI on Wed or Thu night for Memorial Day Weekend with a couple of friends that have a condo there. Is SPI a popular spot at that time of year? What is the demographic like during that weekend? Is there a spring break feel to it? What are the ages of the people that would be down there? I'm hoping that there will be a pretty good party atmosphere. I just got back from Acapulco and can't wait to party it up somewhere else.

I'd really appreciate some truthful insight. Thanks.

Ummmm, yes, SPI will be popular at this time of year, but there will be more of a family atmosphere since schools will be getting out for the summer. Of course, there will be younger folks there, too, but it won't be the crazy scene it is at spring break. There will be a lot of people there from the valley area taking advantage of the holiday weekend.

As linlo stated, the party/spring break atmosphere will be considerably less over that weekend than it is at the moment. Also correct in that a lot of locals will be on hand, and most locals have families with kids.

However, it's still the island, and there's always a party to be found somewhere. It will also be jam-packed with people. I'm sure you can find something that suits your interests.
