Travelers won't be getting any relief from higher airfares in coming years, but there are still plenty of places around the country that offer great vacation value.
Booking site Hotwire has just released a survey of the best bang for your buck destinations. Factoring in the costs of airfare to destinations, rental car rates and hotel prices once there and the general affordability of entertainment options, the company examined a total of 75 destinations, picking the 10 with the best overall marks.
Perhaps surprisingly, the home of Disney, Orlando, Florida, tops the list, thanks to an abundance of airline competition and a glut of bargain-priced hotel rooms.
Other destinations across the south and southwest round out the list, with Denver, Phoenix and Tampa among the top 10. (The latter two destinations happen to have plenty of deals right this minute as Major League Baseball Spring Training is underway in Arizona and Florida.)
