Researchers compared the 150 biggest American cities to find the cheapest and most convenient destinations using 20 metrics categorized into three major sections: costs, facilities and services and activities and attractions.

The Peach City came in at No. 3 overall, while Las Vegas and Orlando earned first and second place, respectively.

Although Atlanta only ranked No. 64 for costs, its high facilities and attractions scores helped the city make it to the top five.

El Paso, on the other hand, ranked No. 1 for costs, but it was only No. 141 for facilities and No. 99 for activities, landing it at No. 26 overall. 

ATL’s cool facilities and attractions weren’t the only statistics to set it apart. It also racked up on points for most bridal shops per capita, tying with Orlando and Cincinnati.
