WalletHub recently conducted an in-depth study on which U.S. cities were the absolute best to spend the holiday, and Washington, D.C., came out on the top 10, ranking at seventh!
The personal financial website used 29 different indicators and analyzed the 100 largest U.S. cities. They took into account: 1) Entertainment & Food, 2) Costs and 3) Safety & Accessibility.
Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 being the “most favorable.” D.C. came out with a 65.76 total score. Ahead of D.C., in order, are New York, New York with a 70.20; Orlando, Florida at 70.12; Las Vegas, Nevada at 70.09; San Francisco, California at 67.03; Atlanta, Georgia at 66.00; and Denver, Colorado 65.87.
D.C. ranked #8 for entertainment and food, but it did rank close to last at #92 for cost, which probably doesn’t surprise you.
