When is Memorial Day 2019? (And Where to Travel for the Long Weekend)

Not only do we have the dates covered, but we have suggestions on where you should travel for the long weekend.

We work hard in the U.S. — sometimes even a little too hard, leaving perfectly good vacation days on the table while the rest of the developed world is happy to say au revoir. Don’t make that mistake this year. Take advantage of the extra day off and go someplace new over Memorial Day Weekend this year.

Step 1: When is the Memorial Day in 2019?

In 2018, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27th, meaning the long weekend lasts from Saturday, May 25th to Monday, May 27th. This is a federal holiday, so unless you’re considered an essential government employee, that means you have the day off.

Step 2: Book your Memorial Day weekend away

With one paid holiday given, why not tack on the Friday preceding the weekend and/or the Tuesday immediately following to make it an extra long weekend?

If you think they need you at the office, well, trust us. They don’t. We’re sure you’re special and important, but the world will not implode if you embrace the long weekend. Instead, live a little and plan a long weekend getaway this Memorial Day. Here we can offer some suggestions.
