WalletHub has released its 2018 Best Winter Holiday Destinations report. What does that mean? It means you no longer have to take your co-worker’s word for it that the hotel your family booked for their annual winter trek is going to grant you points on your gold card. Why? Because, along with the report, the personal finance website also released videos to go along with it, identifying options for the Best Travel Credit Cards, according to their reviews.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., WalletHub was launched in 2013 to assist consumers with their personal purchase, work, and living choices coupled with their financial literacy. The company has released a number of annual reports focusing on items of importance to its followers, who number in the thousands, not the least of which are several geared toward Texas. These include (but aren’t limited to) establishing a business in the Lone Star State, some of the happiest cities in America, and even dating in Texas.

To complete their study on the best winter holiday spots, WalletHub focused on both cost and convenience. In comparison, you might think that scenic beauty ranked as a factor, but in terms of satisfaction, value for dollar appears to be more important to consumers. The company then compared close to 70 of America’s largest metro areas which were considered by their weather patterns – warm and cold. Each of these destinations was then analyzed against 36 important factors, including such things as the expense and the potential for a hassle when traveling to each destination. They also incorporated such metrics as safety, weather, and the variety of activities for travelers.

How did Texas cities fare in the mix? In terms of warm-weather destinations (which makes sense), Dallas ranked 5th in the study, followed closely by Austin at 6th, and Houston at 7th. San Antonio came in 10th, putting two Texas Hill Country cities on the list, and a total of four Texas cities in the top 10! Among these destinations, Dallas also ranked with the lowest price for three-star accommodations (at an average of $49,) which was also noted as being 4.7 times lower than the warm destination city with the highest – which was Honolulu, Hawaii.
