OKC & Tulsa Ranked In Top 10 Best Vacation Destinations
Since 2020 pretty much squashed any and all travel plans all of us had, it seems people are ready to hop back out there and make up for their lost exploration in 2021. There's so much buzz for travel that prices and costs are soaring at the moment, so WalletHub put together a list of the best and worst destinations if you're looking to travel affordably, and there's more than one questionable destination on the list.
First and foremost, Oklahoma City and Tulsa both ranked in the top ten of best cities to affordably visit because, well, they're really affordable. I mean, sure, if you book in Bricktown proper, you're looking at $200-$300 a night for a hotel, but you're in all the action right? If you want to sleep cheaper, just going over the canals or railroad tracks to either side, that hotel price slashes in half for the nicer places, even cheaper for the low end of the spectrum. Tulsa is probably the same way in and outside of their touristy area, but with so many casino/hotel options, it's affordable on any budget. You may wonder why those are both in the top ten best list, but it's probably because we live so close... seen it, done it, got the t-shirt type mentality.
The real questionable eyebrow raising suggestions for "affordable" destinations in that same top ten list have me wondering how they got there... Both Disney World and Disney Land cities are in the top ten, I've been, it was super expensive. Honolulu is shockingly affordable to fly and stay at, but the cost of food and entertainment is sky high there. I guess you could always have a four-day weekend in New Orleans. Eat the amazing food, see all the sights, learn the history, wonder why the French Quarter isn't called the Spanish Quarter... Sounds like fun.
