Well, it’s shaping up to be a pretty big year in Las Vegas for visitors from outside of the state. People are coming to our neighborhood for all kinds of reasons. Brand new gaming venues are opening. Music festivals are happening throughout the year. Sporting events are becoming more and more plentiful. And now there’s another reason for tourists to put Sin City on their list of places to see. Many travel websites, like Kayak, just released a list of the cheapest places to travel to in 2023. And Las Vegas is on it.

Kayak made the list based on a variety of factors. First was who had the cheapest flights. We know specials are offered all the time on flights to Vegas. Especially these smaller airlines like Frontier, Allegiant and Spirit. I’ve flown from Vegas to California, Washington, Utah and Montana for very low fares.

The second factor Kayak considered was the price of hotels. Again, we have specials all the time in Las Vegas. And with rewards programs at our casinos, there’s a lot of money to be saved on lodging here. Add in our time shares and AirBnbs and you’ve got a lot of the cheapest options for visitors coming here.

The final considerations Kayak included in their list are which destinations on the web get the most searches. Also travel restrictions and security concerns in each area searched. 

So where does Las Vegas land on the list of cheapest places to travel to? We took only the cities in the United States to put on our list. And, thanks to Travel and Leisure, we’ve gathered the average cost of flight and hotel it takes to travel to each place. Check out where Las Vegas falls on this list of top 13 cheapest places in the United States to travel to in 2023. – Wendy Rush
