The 3-Day Memorial Day Weekend May 28-30 is the unofficial start of the summer. It is mostly known for amazing sales on cars, clothes and home appliances.
But choosing to spend money on experiences, as opposed to things, can cost you. This is a busy time - more than 30 million people travel - and some places boost their prices too much. Going to the beach is free, but not for everybody (Best Beaches for Memorial Day Weekend).
