Skip the TSA Lines with these Airport-Free Getaways

Skip the TSA Lines with these Airport-Free Getaways

You deserve a vacation. But you don’t deserve a terrifying TSA line that moves so slowly you miss your flight. Our suggestion? Skip the lines this Memorial Day and check out these great driving distance destinations instead. Boom – problem solved.

If you live in NYC, try Boston

Eat a bazillion oysters at Neptune. Wash it all down with Japanese inspired cocktails at Hojoko. Repeat.


If you live in LA, try San Diego

La Jolla. Sea Lions. Fish Tacos. Need we say more?


If you live in Atlanta, try Savannah

Leave the traffic jams behind for a taste of the old South. If you’re feeling romantic, stop by Forsyth Park on Saturday afternoon and you’ll see more than a few wedding parties snapping Pinterest worthy photos.


If you live in Chicago, try Milwaukee

Milwaukee doesn’t get enough love, and that’s a d*mn shame. While you are there, check out the hangover curing Bloody Marias at Engine Company No.3. And yes, we assume you’ll be hungover because this town is filled with incredible craft breweries (Brenner, Door County, Big Head, to name a few.)

If you live in Denver, try Santa Fe

While we love Telluride and Aspen as much as the next person, Santa Fe is a little less expected. Grab a piece of local artwork from Shiprock, then fill up with buckwheat banana pancakes at Sweetwater Harvest.
