If you are planning a trip to Boston this summer, get ready to spend some money. Boston has been named the third priciest city summer getaway in the U.S. by TripAdvisor.
How was it decided? The travel site figured out the cost of an evening out and overnight stay in cities across the country this summer. The night out includes a two-course dinner paired with a bottle of wine, cocktails for two, round-trip taxi transportation, and a one night stay in a hotel between June and August. The best you can do in Boston for all of that is $491, according to TripAdvisor.
To be more specific, the site averaged the cost of a room at a 4 to 4.5-star hotel, a two-course meal for two at a mid-range restaurant that includes a bottle of house white wine, two martinis at a top-rated 5 star hotel, and the cost of two 2-mile taxi rides.
The title of most expensive city trip this summer goes to San Francisco, where all of the above will cost you $508. And second place went to the Big Apple, where you’ll shell out $501.
Looking to book a trip to the least expensive U.S. city this summer? Hop a flight to Sin City, where all of the above will only cost you $276. Of course, you’ll need to stay out of the casinos.Kristi Palma can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on twitter @kristipalma.
