Top Memorial Day Weekend Getaways

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner and it's time to finalize (or maybe start) your weekend getaway plans. From family time to romantic trips for two, Krista Klein's list of Memorial Day weekend getaways offer something for everyone. 


New Orleans, Louisiana 

Want your Memorial Day weekend to be full of good food and even better southern hospitality? Look no further than New Orleans, Louisiana! With the best Cajun food this side of the Mississippi and a little something for everyone, it's no wonder New Orleans is a popular destination for Memorial Day weekenders. Take guided day or spooky night tours through the graveyards that call New Orleans home, or get your grub on at one of the many French Quarter hot spots. 

Looking for more than just food or need something for the kids? Consider making a stop at the Audubon Zoo, Aquarium of the Americans or the famous D-Day Museum. 

Cancun, Mexico 

A short stay in paradise could be just what the doctor ordered and there's no better place than Cancun. Resorts offer great rates beginning in may and over Memorial Day weekend, when many Americans typically stay a little closer to home, you’ll compete with fewer tourists for the perfect beach spot and dinner reservations. 

Charleston, South Carolina 

Polish up your manners and head for the home of southern charm in Charleston, South Carolina. Relax on the beach or explore the pristine coastal town by soaking up some history during a boat tour, walking tour or even food tour!  At night, enjoy all Charleston has to offer with its world-class dining and bars and nightlife entertainment. Feeling a little spooky? Consider doing a historic Charleston ghost tour if you dare! Whatever you decide to do, Charleston makes the perfect quick trip for families or couples looking to get away for the weekend. 

Sonoma, California 

Get ready for a weekend trip you won't forget (unless you drink too much!) in the wine country of Sonoma, California. With some of the best vineyards in the world, Sonoma is the perfect getaway for couples who love a good wine tasting. Want a little less wine and a little more country? Consider taking in the views with kayaking through the Russian River or a tour through Muir Wood. 


No matter where you travel for Memorial Day weekend, remember to pack your Krista Klein travel case so you can always be picture ready with your favorite accessories on!
