Winter is long gone, and it's time to get away and enjoy summer. But also, you don't want to float around in a parking-adjacent motel pool (or maybe you do? To each his own).
To help you maximize your fun without having to sell your organs on the black market, WalletHub has released a ranking of the country's best cities for summer travel this year. The study looked at flights from the six largest airport hubs in the US to the 80 biggest metropolitan areas, and considered things like flight costs, number of attractions in each city, and other expenses you'd face upon arrival.
The results show the Las Vegas metro area, including Las Vegas-Henderson-Paradise, NV, takes the number one spot. Second place goes to Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford (we get it, Orlando is great), and third to Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, GA. Where should you steer clear of? The lowest rating belongs to Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, CT, while New York City is just okay, with New York-Newark-Jersey City coming in 49th.
