Your Guide to Memorial Weekend Getaways


May 2019

Memorial Weekend is upon us! And now the question is….where to go?! DFW has Prepaid Parking to get you ready for Memorial Weekend, so you can spend less time worrying and more time relaxing! Additionally, they have dropped the price of parking per day to $8 when you book on May 22 and 23, valid through 8/31!

So what are the benefits of DFW Prepaid Parking anyways?!

Save Money, time and hassles with Prepaid Parking

DFW Prepaid Parking is always up to 50% off the cost of drive-up parking and the program consistently runs many specials to help customers save even more, like the Memorial Day parking sale! So you can right now, book your entire summers’ parking and get that $8 a day deal!

Additionally, if you live far away from the airport, Prepaid is often cheaper than other forms of transportation to the airport, and you’ll never experience surge pricing!

Lastly, when you book in advance, you can actually choose your terminal. And you’ll also be able to take advantage of better parking spots that are closer to the gates all together!

Once you land back in Dallas, your car is already awaiting you! You don’t have to rely on anyone else to get you home! So now, where to jet off this Memorial Day?! Here are some spots that are all within a short non-stop flight!



Denver, CO

Word has it that it snowed a LOT in Denver over the weekend, so if you want to hit the snow instead of the beach, head to the Mile High City! Flights are still under $300 on American for a non-stop flight, and you’ll arrive to a plethora of outdoor activities including some skiing!




Ever wanted to escape to this tiny art town in West Texas near the Mexico border?! Well, Memorial Weekend is the perfect chance, before it gets too hot to go! You can fly into the Midland airport and rent a car to drive the few hours to the Prada store, Big Bend National Park, and all the art galleries, museums and delicious foods this funky town has to offer! (Fair warning though…flights have gotten pricey, but also Marfa is a total bucket list spot for many people so maybe it’s #worthit?!)

Las Vegas, NV

Another place to visit before it gets too hot. Everyone says all you need is 2 days in Vegas before you’ll be really ready to get home. That was true for us, and it’s great that Vegas isn’t too far away, and with Memorial Weekend, you have exactly two full days to take advantage. Have fun and enjoy the huge pool parties and nightlife, and spend the next day enjoying the art and throwback vibes the city offers, including the Neon Sign Museum!

And if you’re really up for it, rent a car and check out the Grand Canyon! It’s just a short car ride away!

Want a resort-style vacation without paying the price to fly to a city like Palm Springs, San Diego or Palm Beach?! While Scottsdale might not have the beach, it certainly has stunning scenery and some out-of-this-world relaxing and beautiful resorts. You can hang out by the pool and soak up the sun all weekend long!
