If that’s the case when it comes to planning an upcoming winter getaway over the holiday season, WalletHub has you covered with its latest best winter holiday destinations ranking. Rather than looking at things like snowy scenic beauty or warm temps in the midst of winter, WalletHub compared travel destinations according to expense, hassle and convenience, among other factors.

 

WalletHub found, according to factors like these, if you’re seeking a cold-weather winter destination, Chicago is the place to go. Other destinations in the top 10 included Washington, D.C.; Atlanta, Georgia; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Denver, Colorado; Boston, Massachusetts; St. Louis, Missouri; Cincinnati, Ohio; New York, New York; and Portland, Oregon.

 

The study likewise found, if you want to visit a warm-weather locale this winter, your best bet would be Austin, Texas. Texas destinations ranked highly on WalletHub’s list, with other cities in its top 10 including Dallas, Texas; San Diego, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Tampa, Florida; Houston, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Charleston, South Carolina; Phoenix, Arizona; and Orlando, Florida.
