Mark your calendars: Memorial Day is the next holiday on the books. And who can resist taking advantage of a three-day weekend? If you're tempted to plan a getaway, consider one of these fun places to spend the holiday:
Key West, Florida
Road trip to Mile 0! Skyscanner named Key West as one of the most popular destinations for spending Memorial Day weekend under the glorious Florida sun. It's no wonder considering three days of boating, surfing, tanning, eating and drinking sounds like a dream.
Memorial Day in the Windy City includes a fabulous parade and firework displays for your patriotic side, plus deep dish pizza, live music and baseball to get your tourist on. And, of course, you can't visit Chicago without taking a pic of your reflection on the side of the famous Bean sculpture.
In the mood for a no-frills, easygoing weekend? Portland is the destination for you. Bring your appetite because the city is known for its coffee, craft beer and foodie scene.
Charleston, South Carolina
Get ready for some Southern charm! The beautiful cobblestone streets, pre-Civil war architecture, historic theaters, waterfront walkways and celebratory festivals make it a quaint yet vibrant destination.
Las Vegas, Nevada
If you're looking for the Memorial Day parties, Las Vegas is the place to be. Stay in one of the resorts for all of the action, or just pay the cover charge to join the celebrations. Either way, cheers to long weekends!
Yosemite National Park, California
Some people love three days at the beach, but you're looking for a different kind of experience with nature. Pack your hiking boots and spend the weekend with unforgettable and uninterrupted views.
New Orleans, Louisiana
This treasure trove of everything from unmatched delicacies to lively nighttime adventures is the perfect place to spend a weekend. It's even better when you don't have to share the city with the Mardi Gras crowds.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
If you're looking for a classic New England getaway, head to Cape Cod to relax and watch the yachts glide across the sea. Even better: Hop on a ferry yourself and escape to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard for an island retreat.
