If the sky's the limit for your summer vacation this year, then you may want to consider visiting San Francisco.  Trip Advisor, the travel planning and review website, today named San Francisco the most expensive U.S. city for summer travel.

If you're on a budget, head to Las Vegas. For the fourth straight year, Vegas earned the title of most affordable U.S. destination for the summer.  The annual Trip-Index Cities cost comparison study compares the price of an evening out and overnight stay in 67 key tourist cities around the USA and world. It measures typical costs for two for cocktails, a two-course dinner paired with a bottle of wine, round-trip taxi transportation, and a one-night stay in a hotel from June to August.

The daily cost of staying in San Francisco was $508. New York City, with a cost of $501, and Boston, with $491, rounded out the top three most expensive U.S. cities.  London was the most expensive city worldwide with a daily cost of $520. Paris followed with $510. New York City rounded out the top three.
