While Atlanta may not be the best at preparing for snowy weather conditions, the city is an ideal destination for holiday travel, according to a new report.
With a focus on cost and convenience, WalletHub recently released its rankings for “2019’s Best Winter Holiday Destinations,” and Atlanta was listed among the top five.
The personal finance website analyzed around 70 of the largest metro areas and looked at six key factors: travel costs and hassles, costs in destination, attractions, weather, activities, and safety.
Within these categories, WalletHub examined 37 metrics, and each was graded on a 100 point scale. Atlanta took the No. 3 spot, following Washington D.C. at No. 2 and Chicago at No. 1. Atlanta also ranked third for “most cold-weather activities.”
Here’s a snapshot of Atlanta’s results:
Total score: 68.19
Travel costs & hassles: No. 3
Attractions: No. 11
Weather: No. 2
Activities: No. 3
Safety: No. 25
