Santa Barbara is the second most expensive city in the U.S. to spend your Memorial Day Weekend—or any summer vacation dates for that matter—according to a new survey by Los Angeles-based GoBankingRates.com. Only New York City ranks higher.
Content Director Casey Bond says the findings were not a shock.
"To be honest, I mean, most people don't know Santa Barbara for its low cost-of-living, so it wasn't too much of a surprise that it came out number two in our most expensive cities to travel to," said Bond.
San Francisco came in just behind Santa Barbara.
