Before you know it Memorial Day will have arrived signaling the beginning of summer travel. But where are people going for a summer trip/vacation? You might have a few destinations already in mind, but your travel budget might not agree. So which places offer the most bang for the buck? You might be surprised!

Wallethub crunched the numbers for us and the number 1 location in the US that offers the best deal for summer travel is our nations capitol! Washington D.C. got ranked number 1 after Wallethub considered not only the cost and convenience of traveling to each location and its affordability, but it also looked at the number of attractions and variety of activities at each destination to ensure you and the family will stay busy and entertained throughout the trip.
