Memorial Day weekend staycation

Memorial Day weekend has been notorious for people hopping in their car, trucks, and campers and heading to the destination of their choice. But this year, with gas prices at nearly $4 nationally for regular gas, some people in our area have chosen to just relax closer to home.

We spoke to a few people at Sam Houston Jones State Park in Moss Bluff and Prien Lake Park and I-10 Beach, both in Lake Charles.

In order of video appearance: Damon Clark (11yrs old), Brenda Lopez (SWLA resident), Herman Primeaux (Moss Bluff resident), Earkia Granger Cole (Lake Charles), Susan Villagomez (Duncanville, Tx), Mary Brown (Beaumont, Tx), Chosen Brown (2yrs old)

Enjoy your "staycation" video.
