Itโ€™s not too late to book a Memorial Day Weekend getaway but where to go?

The weekend can be busy in some places but that means thereโ€™s plenty happening so you can choose somewhere quiet, off the beaten track for a tranquil break or somewhere with tons to see and do thanks to the weekendโ€™s attractions.

Tripstodiscover.com have helped us decide with a list of terrific Memorial Day weekend getaways.

1. Miami, Florida

This time of year in Miami typically means comfortable temps, fewer crowds and discounted hotel rates.

The city also happens to throw some of the best beach parties in the country โ€“ even Vegas canโ€™t compete with its booze-infused fests, including oceanside celebrations, music extravaganzas and hopping nightclubs.

Miami hosts Urban Beach Week, catering to the โ€œHip Hop Generation,โ€ drawing over 300,000 participants to South Beach for its festivities that take place over five days, from May 22 to May 26 in 2015.

Not everything is about alcohol though, the city also honors the countryโ€™s veterans with the annual March of Colors and a wreath-laying ceremony at Miami Beach Police Headquarters.

When visiting Miami, you want to be right in the middle of the all of the action, and the Hyatt Regency Miami offers amazing accommodation on the doorstep of all the best sights and attractions.

What better way to spend the long weekend celebrating than reveling in fun festivities and feasting on scrumptious jambalaya?

New Orleans offers something for everyone, including families, with attractions like the Aquarium of the Americas, The Insectarium and The Audubon Zoo as well as Greek Fest, when descendants of the cityโ€™s earliest Greek settlers commemorate their heritage with a festival celebrating all things pan-Hellenic, including fun, music and Greek food for the whole family.

The New Orleans Wine and Food Experience also takes place over Memorial Day Weekend, combining the cityโ€™s fabulous cuisine with fine wines.

The National World War II Museum not only offers outstanding exhibits, it commemorates the holiday with a performance by the Marine Corps quintet from 10:30 to 11 a.m.

If youโ€™re looking to party in New Orleans, then the closer to the French Quarter, the better!
