If you’re looking for one of the best weekend getaways of your life, consider San Antonio. According to U.S. News & World Report “an influx of business travelers cause hotel room rates to surge during the week. Stay on the weekend and you could save big.” While you’re there, make sure to check out the city’s most famous site, The Alamo; it’s free to visit. Walk along the River Walk and take a boat cruise for only $10 a person. There are also plenty of museums that offer free admission.
