Travel tips for Memorial Day Weekend

Travel heats up as coronavirus restrictions are lifted; Kurt ‘The Cyberguy’ Knutsson shares his tips on ‘Fox and Friends Weekend.’

With families reuniting and masks being shed, Memorial Day 2021 will look different than last year.

Observed on the last Monday of May, the federal holiday honors the courageous men and women who gave their lives while serving in the United States military. Initially named Decoration Day following the Civil War, the day of commemoration officially became a federal holiday in 1971.

Many Americans recognize the holiday by holding gatherings, attending parades and visiting memorials or gravesites of Americans who perished.

Fox NewsAmerica Together wants you to share how you’re observing the holiday this year.
