From-the-Hip Memorial Day Trips
Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer and one of the most popular three-day weekends of the year. If your holiday weekend schedule doesn't already involve a backyard cookout or other big plans, consider spontaneity — there is still time to finalize a travel plan. With input from Hipmunk as well as our own research, Cheapism identified destinations in every state where it's still possible to either fly or make hotel reservations (for the road trippers) without taking too big a chunk out of your summer-fun budget.
Note: All airfare prices are based on Hipmunk data for round-trip domestic airfare bookings made between April 24 and May 8 with a departure date of May 24 through May 27 and a return date of May 28 through May 30. All hotel prices were searched on Skyscanner during early May. Prices and availability are subject to change.
