You’ve been busy. What with spring cleaning, Mad Men
ending, and keeping up with the candidates
(let alone the Kardashians
), who could expect you to find the time to make epic Memorial Day plans? Most likely, the holiday weekend sneaked up on you like it did the rest of us, and now you’re stuck wondering just how to spend your three days of freedom. Sure, a staycation is always nice. But, consider first the beauty of a weekend away. After all, there are numerous vacation destinations that are just a stone’s throw from L.A. proper.
If you’re looking for a rustic mountain weekend, consider a drive up to Big Bear. Or, perhaps the beach is more your scene? Orange County or San Diego may be for you. No matter how you’re looking to spend your holiday, you’ll find a great place to rest your head after you’ve gone through this list. And, don’t fret about counting those pennies, because these accommodations are all affordable (especially once you get a few friends signed on).
So, stop feeling glum about your lack of plans and scroll through to find the perfect place for your #memorialday2015. It’s gonna be a good one.
