How to get the most out of your trip to the United States
Martin Jones, CEO of ParkSleepFly said, “Our study found that Oklahoma City is the number one place to go for tourists looking for the best value, with costs as low as $ 3 for a beer, $ 11.50 for a meal at restaurant and $ 106 for one night at the hotel!
“This means Oklahoma City tourists could extend their vacations almost three times as long as if they visited New York for the exact same price.
“On the other hand, some of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States, such as New York and San Francisco, are unsurprisingly the most expensive destinations to stay.
“However, if you have planned a trip ahead, there are a number of ways to cut costs during your stay,” he added.
Jones mentioned a number of tips for getting the most out of your money, including choosing alternative accommodation such as Airbnb and timeshares instead of hotels.
Choosing to walk or take public transport around your destination instead of taxis would also be beneficial, as well as visiting free attractions.
