Best U.S. Cities for Affordable Getaways

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

No. 16 Dallas/Fort Worth

16 of 21

Voters have long saluted Big D for its haute taste in shopping, but this year the Texas metropolis climbed 10 places in affordability—so voters clearly found more to love than just the original, downtown Neiman Marcus. At the nearby free Dallas Museum of Art, the permanent collection includes a re-creation of Coco Chanel’s living room. The Metroplex also scored well for its value-minded sports bars. Better yet, catch a minor league Cats baseball game in Fort Worth, with scenic downtown views, from $9.
