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. 20 Atlanta

20 of 21

One of Atlanta’s must-visit historic sites, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park, is free, and you need reservations only if you want a guided tour of King’s birthplace or the Ebenezer Baptist Church. Another reason that Atlanta may have cracked the top 20 this year is that voters gave high marks to its affordable barbecue. Start your taste test at Candler Park’s Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, which has developed a cult following for its wallet-friendly brisket, fried okra, and grilled pimento-cheese sandwiches.
