It's a three-day weekend... Are you leaving the country?

Given the convenience and speed of air travel, it's odd that I don't think about flying anywhere for a three-day weekend. To me, that's a road-trip weekend and anything more than 3-4 hours is pushing it. However, with Memorial Day weekend just about upon us, it's got me thinking about where I could go.

I have friends who have traveled to other states for a quick getaway, so it can't be that bad right? I guess I've always had this idea that the amount of effort in travel can't exceed the amount of time you have to enjoy wherever you are. This completely rules out international travel for me, but not for others.

According to Hotel Tonight, the number of Americans leaving the country on three-day weekends is increasing.
