Spring is in bloom across the country, making May a great time for a getaway. Rates tend to rise as summer approaches, but deals are available for travelers who book ahead -- even over Memorial Day weekend.
One money-saving tip: Extend your Memorial trip over Monday night. Rates at many hotels are lower on the holiday and airfare is often cheaper on Tuesdays.
