Affordable hotel rates, free museums, and plentiful barbecue and beer make these cities a bargain for travelers.

No. 14 Charleston, SC

17 of 21

The southern city ranked first in the survey for its fine dining. For a reasonable $40, you join Culinary Tours of Charleston to meet with award-winning chefs, heirloom bakers, and artisan food purveyors. An early evening ride on the Schooner Pride ($35), a three-mast wooden ship, takes you past Civil War landmarks, barrier islands, and the pretty harbor at sunset—nice reminders of why the city ranked fifth for history and No. 1 for romance. Charleston also ranked near the top for girlfriend getaways.
