There’s a new pirates movie this weekend! Whether your Pirates of the Caribbean fan or not, here’s some fascinating facts about pirate money that we bet you didn't learn from Johnny Depp…

Pirates actually very rarely buried their treasure.

This myth was popularized by fictional tales such as Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson and The Gold-Bug by Edgar Allan Poe, but in reality there are very few cases of pirates who buried their treasure. They preferred to spend or trade their loot rather than leave it on an island for someone else to steal.

You may want to get away for Memorial day weekend, but don't want to spend a lot of money doing so. Here's a few road trip ideas that won't break the bank, but will get you away from your everyday routine.

Theme your Road Trip

You could hunt down all the LOVE signs in Virginia... seek out covered bridges within driving distance... explore all the local road side attractions. Tagging a theme onto your road trip can make it exciting and fun. You could even create a road trip playlist to go with your theme and create road trip games to keep your family busy while you're heading to your destinations.
