With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, planning a quick road trip can be fun and save you money.
Once you figure out a destination, search Groupon or Living Social deals for that city. Several Indianapolis hot spots, for example, offer half-off deals on restaurants, wine-tastings and museum tickets.
Also, if you're a member of the Cincinnati Zoo or Children's Museum, you automatically get in free at a number of other zoos and museums around the country.
