May is a wonderful time to travel. Not only is it beautiful, the costs are lower and the crowds are minimal. It really one of the best times of the year to travel. The weather is not too hot or too cold either. There are many activities to attend in May all over the US.
Cinco De Mayo comes first. The best places to go on this holiday are: San Antonio, TX, Reno, Nevada, Chicago, Illinois, San Diego, California, Denver, Colorado, Phoenix, Arizona, San Francisco, California, Portland, Oregon, St. Paul, Minnesota and Kansas City, Missouri. All of these cities have music, festivals and huge Mexican celebrations for the holiday.
There is also the Kentucky Derby. The Kentucky Derby is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbred colts and fillies, held on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville. It has been run every year since it was begun on May 17, 1875. It is a very exciting event and if you can go to one. It is a great experience.
Then there is Memorial Day weekend. This seems to be the weekend that kicks off the summer time. Which is exciting for kids. In most cases that means that they are off school for the next few months. There are things to do every where on memorial day weekend. You can check any city in the US and see which one seems the funnest for your family or even check locally to see what your town has going on.
