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. 17 Philadelphia

17 of 21

As the birthplace of our democracy, the City of Brotherly Love has mastered both high and low culture with equal accessibility. You can visit the Liberty Bell (free) as well as the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside of Paris at Philly’s recently renovated Rodin Museum ($8 suggested admission). If your idea of a masterpiece, however, is the perfect microbrew, take the free Saturday tours at either Yards Brewing Company or Philadelphia Brewing Company, which include samples.
