    Though your favorite vacation spot may be already booked, you can stay close to home as everyone hits the highways for long destinations this coming weekend. See what opportunities are available last minute.

    Check into a local hotel that has relaxing amenities, free breakfast and maybe even a jacuzzi. Check on Groupon or Living Social to see if you can access a variety of vouchers for restaurants and other attractions.

    Check out the National Park Service to discover historic districts to explore in your area including national parks that combine beauty and education about the evolution of nature. Stop for your favorite coffee as you walk the trails. Have your favorite pizza for dinner.

    Check with your local museum for memorial day events. Natural History Museum of Utah offers the history of chocolate and tastings. You can attend the ancient Maya exhibition, one of the largest in the world, at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. If in the Washington DC area, the National Mall is the home to Lincoln, Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Franklin D. Roosevelt. You will also see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, the National World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial. Bluestar museums offer free admission to military personnel.

    Check for special parades to attend. Chicago’s Memorial Day Parade honors all men and women in all wars. The Chicago parade is considered one of the largest Memorial Day parades in the nation. Since 1870, Memorial Day parades have graced the streets of Chicago.
