Traveling with family always comes with a price tag. I have learned over the years that the amount spent on a vacation does not always correlate with the enjoyment level. In other words, some of our favorite vacations have been the ones where we’ve spent the least amount of money.

Money Magazine recently released a list of the 7 Best Domestic Destinations that offer the best travel experience at the best prices for 2016.

Cities that made their list include: Sante Fe, New Mexico; Austin, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Memphis, Tennessee; New York, New York and San Diego, California.

Read the full article (here) to find out why each city was chosen for the list.

Have you been to any of these cities? If so, did you find them affordable?

10 U.S. Cities To Visit With Kids

With 2015 quickly coming to an end, I’m starting to look ahead to next year’s travel. My priority is to add at least 3 new states to our collection (read about our travel goals here.)


To do this, we will mostly likely take a big road trip. I’d like to incorporate a major city into our travel too. I found a great post by Anna at My Life and Kids about 10 U.S. Cities to Visit with Kids.


The 10 cities she suggests in her post are: Washington DC, San Diego, Philadelphia,  New York City, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Charleston, Atlanta and San Antonio. She had some great suggestions for activities to do in each of the cities! Read her full post here.

If you could visit any U.S. city, which one would you pick? And why?
