Planning Your Vacations in 2023? Check Out The CHEAPEST Destinations!

The site, one of my wife Meg’s favorites, just released a list of the cheapest places to travel in 2023. The site based their list on a variety of factors, including flight and hotel prices, most “clicked” destinations on the web, travel restrictions, and security concerns. The original list had 18 destinations, including several in Canada, Mexico and Central America, but I narrowed it down to the Top 5 places, and I’ve actually been to all five: 

  1. San Antonio, Texas
  2. Denver, Colorado
  3. Atlanta, Georgia
  4. Chicago, Illinois
  5. New York City, New York

Here are my brief, personal revelations about each one of these fantastic destinations, without any concern for being “cheap” or saving money:

1) Visit The Waterfront Walk, THEN check out The Alamo

2) Great Airport; go in the off (non-ski) season and enjoy multiple awesome restaurants

3) More culturally diverse and rewarding than most Californians might imagine

4) Eat a Chicago Dog while marveling at the beaches right outside downtown that butt up against the larger-than-life Lake Michigan…don’t forget to visit the “Bean”

5) Catch a Broadway Show, and if you run into either of my actor sons, tell ‘em “your Dad says he loves you.” @jakebentleyyoung @brettcoleyoung
