These Are The Best Ways To Beat Memorial Day Weekend Traffic

Memorial Day weekend brings out the happy across the country. Perhaps Americans are excited summer is finally around the corner and that means beach, ice cream and BBQ and a 3-day weekend never hurts either. But there’s one thing that can put a major damper on the weekend – not rain, but traffic.

A transportation expert at Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments says if you plan on leaving on a Thursday – head out by noon or don’t bother leaving until after midnight.

If there’s a shortcut, chances are everyone else is on that same route.

Take the scenic route – sure the travel could be longer in miles but could also save time. If you live by a lake or beach – stay home for the weekend and do a day trip leaving Saturday morning. It’s the best of both worlds – time away and no traffic.

Still in some cases – long weekend traffic is unavoidable – so bring games, music, and snacks.
