East Coast got Memorial Day plans? Go to Anchorage!

Memorial Day is right around the corner people and if you haven’t got plans yet you’re late to the party. I personally took advantage of some tickets from New York City to Mexico City, where I’ll be hanging out with my girlfriend in Teotihuacan and eating tacos until I turn green.

I booked in early March; holiday fares usually dry up well before the date, leaving latecomers high and dry by a few weeks out.

Lucky for you though, there’s a mini fare war for flights to Anchorage this May, which happens to include Memorial Day in the available dates. That means you east coasters still have a chance to book that last minute getaway to the nation’s largest state.

Departures are from Philadelphia, centrally located among DC, New York City and Baltimore for a paltry 385$. It also works in the other direction, so if any of you moose want to visit the City for a weekend we’ll have you. Book soon though, this fare has been live for a few days now so it won’t last much longer, especially during a holiday weekend.

You can do a flex search on Kayak to easily find dates around Memorial day or other times in May.

Stop and visit Blogger Catherine Bodry while you’re up there, I hear she leads ice climbing expeditions up the north face of Mt. McKinley.
