    New York is worth the expense. You get so much without needing a car for travel. There’s also a ton of stuff to do once you’re there: Central Park (free), the New York Public Library (free), Bryant Park (free), Broadway (#sigh).

    For those who like to estimate exactly how much each part of their vacation is going to cost I liked the formula provided in the last paragraph of this article. Here is something that may help keep the hotel accommodations costs down to a minimum!

    You don’t hear about it as often as the others but they are actually one of THE BEST places to search!

    For the second year in a row, HotelsCombined(my partner) has won the title of the World’s Leading Hotel Comparison Website in the 2014 World Travel Awards!

    I used to use sites like Travelocity, Expedia, Priceline, Last Minute, just to mention a few, but I quickly found the better way to find the BEST deals is to go to the second level – sites like CheapestHotelReservations dot info who compare hundreds of booking sites in one single search. You not only receive Trivago or Expedia deals but ALL of them in one place!

    They don’t charge any booking fees and they also have a guarantee that if you can find a cheaper rate elsewhere they will pay you the difference!

    My guess is that they DID NOT factor Las Vegas resort fees into this equation (they are mandatory but were probably not included in “hotel prices”). Major flaw if not included.
