By Jessica Estrada for Easy Charter Bus | May 21, 2018 | Culture

Memorial Day weekend always serves as the unofficially kick off to the summer season and what better way to celebrate than with a getaway. From Newport, Rhode Island to the Catskills, here are five Easy Charter Bus-recommended getaways to take this holiday weekend.

Newport, Rhode Island


If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for Memorial Day weekend, head to the gorgeous enclave of Newport, Rhode Island. We highly recommend making the drive there. The scenic route is an adventure in and of itself. When you arrive, stay at Gurney’s Newport Resort, which is complete with an indoor and outdoor pool and the raved about Scarpetta restaurant. You can also spend the weekend touring the iconic mansions and taking a stroll through Cliff Walk.

Recommended charter: With premium amenities such as televisions, wifi, plush reclining seats, and panoramic windows, Ally Bus NYC will make your trip to Newport one smooth, Instagram-worthy ride.



It’s not officially summer until you’ve made it to the Hamptons. Kick off the season right with lobster rolls, pink sunsets, high-end shopping, and lots of sunshine. From Southampton to East Hampton, there’s so much to see and do.

Recommended charter: If you’ve waited until the last minute to make your Memorial Day weekend plans, GOGO Charters has your back. They can have a bus ready for you and your squad in two hours or less.



The charming town of Catskills was made for you if you’re looking for a low key way to celebrate Memorial Day weekend without all the revelry. Highlights include delicious food, plush inns, lush greenery, and swimming holes. Escaping the concrete jungle has never felt this good. You’ll return to the city feeling completely recharged.

Recommended charter: Servicing New York and short distance trips, Easy Charter Bus’ minibuses come in a variety of sizes (accommodating 18 to 25 passengers) making it a go-to for a quick weekend getaway.



There’s a reason Montauk is a go-to getaway destination for New Yorkers. The white sand beaches are gorgeous. The hiking trails are awe-inspiring. The energy of the town is upbeat and carefree. While you’re there for Memorial Day weekend, be sure to make it to the top of the Montauk Point lighthouse to take in the sweeping views. If you’re in a party mood, hit up the Surf Lodge to enjoy a concert under the stars.

Recommended charter: NYC Charter Bus Company makes it easy to round up your squad and travel in comfort and style.

Cape Cod, Massachusetts


For a more quiet escape, head to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Just a five-hour drive from the heart of NYC, the dreamy peninsula has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The vibe is laid-back without sacrificing luxury. Case in point: The five-star Wequassett Resort and Golf Club replete with cozy cottages, luxe suites, waterfront views, five restaurants, two pools, and two beaches.

Recommended charter: National Charter Bus’ drivers are thoroughly vetted and certified, which means you and your friends and family are in good hands no matter where you’re headed for Memorial Day weekend.
