Las Vegas gets high marks for affordable honeymoons

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS -- Couples on tight budgets will find that Las Vegas is the nation’s second best city for an affordable summer honeymoon behind only Chicago, according to rankings released Wednesday by WalletHub.

The consumer information website, which ranked 100 cities, based its findings on 13 metrics. Among those metrics, Las Vegas was rated as having the second most attractions and activities, the fourth cheapest four-star hotels, and 15th cheapest rental cars.

Las Vegas also placed 34th best in weather conditions, 46th for best percentage of romantic hotels and 85th for bed and breakfast accommodations per capita.

John Kiernan, writing for WalletHub, stated that the average honeymoon costs upwards of $4,000.

“That’s a lot of money no matter who you are, especially as we emerge from one of the most significant economic downturns in history,” Kiernan wrote.

“After all, the average household has around $6,000 in the bank and owes $7,000 to their credit card company. And that’s not even to mention the $1.11 trillion we owe student loan companies or the 26 percent of people who are behind on medical bills.”
