If you're looking to make a quick trip over the holiday weekend the first place you need to look is online.

If you need last minute plane tickets, FareCompare suggests taking of advantage of the Memorial Day deals through Frontier Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.

Money Allocator also suggests packing lunches and snacks to save money on your trip, instead of eating out. Also, if you use your credit card, use one that offers cash back incentives.
