Can you believe that Memorial Day weekend is only a couple of days away? Memorial Day weekend is usually looked at as the unofficial beginning of summer. The weekend is full of barbecues and other events depending on where you are located. It is one of my favorite Holidays. Below are five cheap Memorial Day destinations that you can choose from.
I can’t have a list of places to go without Savannah being on it. If you follow my blog, you know that Savannah is one of my favorite cities. There are a lot of things to do there. River Street will be full of people during Memorial Day weekend (MDW). Tybee Island should have a nice crowd as well. You might even be able to check out a minor league baseball game while you’re there. Check out my post about Savannah to find more things to do while you’re there.
Jacksonville is second on the list of Memorial Day destinations. It’s a nice city to visit during MDW. The Jacksonville Jazz Festival will be happening that weekend. You can also go to Jacksonville Beach to relax and enjoy the weather. The Jacksonville Landing is another area where people can go and have fun. There are a lot of shops, restaurants, and bars there.
There are more than a few things to do in Orlando during Memorial Day weekend. Orlando is another one of my favorite cities. I lived there for nearly eight months when I interned at Disney World. Speaking of Disney World, it’s a must see place when you’re in Orlando. You can go to one of the four main theme parks out there, or you can people watch at Disney Springs. Another place you can visit is Universal Studios. They have an area called City Walk which has a lot of restaurants and a few clubs. If you’re looking for more nightlife make sure you go to Church Street. There are tons of bars and restaurants to choose from.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Honestly, you can go to New Orleans any time of the year and have a good time. During MDW there is a Greek Festival that is going on. The festival showcases Greek culture, music and of course food. Then there is always Bourbon Street. Bars, bars, and more bars. If you don’t want to drink, you can people watch all around the French Quarter. I’ve been there a couple of times. There are shops and restaurants all over. I’m pretty sure there is never a dull moment in the French Quarter.
Charleston, South Carolina
During Memorial Day Weekend, Charleston will have a few festivals that are going on. There are also five beaches where you can go to relax and chill. Charleston is a quiet city, so don’t expect to see the crowds that you would in Orlando or Miami there. For some people, that can be a good thing.
