Memorial Day falls on the last Monday in May each year (on May 30th in 2022), kicking off the summer travel season. It's the ideal time to take a trip pretty much anywhere in the U.S.—the summer heat has not yet set in, the showers of spring have ended, and peak season (and its peak prices) has yet to come.
