The most and least expensive states to visit in the U.S.
Where are you going on vacation this year?
You might want to consult AAA's 2008 annual Vacation Costs Survey to see a comparison of the 10 most --and 10 least--expensive states to visit.
North Dakota is definitely the cheapest; Hawaii, the most expensive. According to the survey, the average cost for lodging is $164 per night (based on double occupancy). AAA recommends spending about $244 per day for lodging and meals.
The survey culls published rates from more than 60,000 restaurants and lodgings; costs are based on average published prices for meals and lodgings for two adults.
