A Great Getaway? Stay Right Here — Dave’s Diary

It’s summertime and the living is, well in the top 10 percent as far as summer road trips are concerned. In fact, the folks at WalletHub say Washington is the fifth-best vacation state based on a formula including driving costs, lodging prices, traffic safety, weather and, of course, fun attractions for everyone. Oregon came in at No. 1.WalletHub is a personal finance social media network, and using 21 key metrics, WalletHub compared each of the 50 states to determine which state offers the most enjoyment and the least damage to one’s wallet. The idea is to help road-trip vacationers budget accordingly and experience quality destinations without breaking the bank.
