The Cheapest Cities for a Staycation in the USA

Everyone knows that overseas travel can be expensive, with travel insurance and visa applications, as well as the price of a flight to your destination. What’s more, with the travel industry being impacted by COVID-19, travel to and from other countries is a risk.

So, a great and perhaps safer alternative is a local vacation, have you ever considered a staycation? The U.S. has so much to offer, from the incredible natural attractions such as the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls to the universal symbol of freedom, The Statue of Liberty, there is something for everyone to explore.

Staycations are also, in most cases, a cheaper option than overseas travel, that’s why we have created an index revealing the cheapest staycations in the U.S. We have analyzed data on the average price of a meal, pint of beer, hotel per night, transport and day trips to find out which U.S. cities are the cheapest.
