3 Amazing Weekend Getaways to Embark on This May

As the weather continues to warm up and the sun stays out a few moments longer each day, the month of May presents ample opportunities to travel and enjoy it. With many holidays and celebratory events taking place this month, it might be hard to fit in a fully loaded vacation with how busy you might be. No need to fret, as you can still take part in some well needed time away with a quick weekend getaway! With May providing plenty of opportunities to embark on a weekend excursion, here are a few dates to keep in mind on the calendar this month!

Mother's Day

As a testament to all the great mothers out there, why not make the weekend a time that is all about her? While coming up with an idea on your own is great, this would be a great opportunity to ask her and see what she is interested in doing. She is not sure what to do? 

Might we suggest a nice relaxing weekend at a spa for a leisurely couple day? Or perhaps a trip to a local city for some shopping and sampling of the local cuisine? Regardless of where you go, your mother will appreciate a weekend that is all about them.

Memorial Day Weekend

Honoring those who served and fallen, Memorial Day Weekend is an opportune time to spend time with loved ones and reminisce on those no longer with us. For some families, there might be a tradition you can continue following in order to do both. Or some may just want to enjoy the beautiful weather with great company. 

Either way, with summer near, getting outside and catching some sun is a fun way to spend this holiday. For families with former service members, you can also pay them a visit at their grave and give them some flowers. That way everyone can be included in the commemoration.


We are sure parents and students first remember drop off day and moving into the dorms with a new chapter of life ahead. And just like that, those four years flew by, and now, that freshman you dropped off is now about to walk across the stage and become a graduate. This is no tall task, so it only feels fitting to celebrate your child’s academic successes with a quick getaway! 

With the weather only getting warmer, it might be time to break out the towels & sunscreen and head to your local beach! Get your feet wet or dive right into the ocean, try some local food joints, and take a moment to appreciate the triumph of completing an important chapter in life.
