Memorial Day looms like a giant prize for the work-weary. But where to go?

In the May 13 issue of the Travel section, we outlined seven weekend escapes that can give you a break from the tedium of the daily turmoil. We suggested getaways to Ventura, San Francisco, Del Mar, Portland, Ore., Las Vegas, Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage and San Juan Capistrano. Watch for a story on Arroyo Grande in this Sunday's print edition and online.

Or you can turn to our Road Trips in the West page -- a collection of 188 journeys all over the West. AAA predicts that the cost of gas will decrease for the weekend -- it's down 18 cents a gallon nationally from a year ago -- and you can estimate your trip cost using AAA's fuel cost calculator.
