One of the favorite things for many of us is planning a vacation. Nothing is better than a well-planned calendar with flight info and dinner reservations. But first you need to know when exactly to do it.  Here is a list of the 2019 public holidays in USA, where most of government offices, businesses, shops and banks will be closed on:

TuesdayJanuary 1New Year’s Day
MondayJanuary 21Martin Luther King Day
TuesdayFebruary 12Lincoln’s Birthday
Monday February 18 President’s Day
Monday May 27Memorial Day
ThursdayJuly 4Independence Day
MondaySeptember 2Labor Day
Monday October 14Columbus Day
TuesdayNovember 5 Election Day
ThursdayNovember 28Thanksgiving
WednesdayDecember 25Christmas

If a public holiday falls on a Saturday, the preceding Friday is a holiday and if a holiday falls on a Sunday the following Monday is a holiday.

And as for state holidays, they are holidays for the government and public sector in that state and many, but not all, private businesses will give employees the day off.
