The most affordable destinations for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner, which means summer and vacation season are also underway.

For many, the extended three-day weekend is a time to fire up the grill and host a BBQ and for others, the holiday is a time to relax and catch the National Memorial Day parade on TV. But for a select few, the time is reserved for vacation. Last year, 39.3 million Americans planned on traveling -- and from that pool of travelers, 88.1 percent drove to their destination.

To give you inspiration for where to go this year, Priceline crunched numbers to find the cheapest destinations for Memorial Day travel.
