    Been there twice now to do all the tourist things and generally hang out, and I did not find it expensive. Accommodation, rental car, food, etc. was all on par with most other places I have been in the USA. It was actually one of the cheapest international trips I've ever been on, flight/car/hotel was under $1000 for a week which is similar to Florida pricing. We even got offered an extremely cheap upgrade to a Corvette, which was complete garbage, but fun for the week.
    How is SD cheap if it's the same price as going to Florida?

    If $1000/wk all in isn't cheap, then what is?

    I'm going to Nashville today. I'll report back on how intriguing and cheap it was.

    How is under $1000 for good flights, car, and a good hotel not cheap by any definition for a whole week? Florida is one of the cheapest places to go in the USA and SanDiego was the same price, which makes it very cheap. You can't even go an hour away to Banff for a week for under $1000 most times of the year and that is JUST hotel.

    I looked at going to Florida again this September, and direct flights to Orlando (WJ), Car, and hotel (2-bedroom fully appointed condo with kitchen at a place I've been before) was $830/pp for a week. International travel doesn't get any cheaper than that really. Hard to believe they are even making money on prices like that.

    What international destinations have you been to for a week or more where direct flight/car/good hotel was well under $1000/pp?

    I really enjoyed Yellowstone, also if you get some free space on the roads, it's an awesome driving experience

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    If you are up for an adventure - we spent 2 weeks (for work) sitting around getting paid to swim/seadoo/knee board in Baxter Northern Minnesota while our equipment was stuck in customs.

    We stayed at the rental cabins (fucking pimp) and explored the MANY lakes in the area.

    This is the link to the LODGE but you dont have to stay there (they sub out homes in the lakeshore like Airbnb

    This was early Sept. btw- still very warm (30c).

    Short term update:

    The electric scooter rentals are totally awesome for touring around. Actual Uber rides are not cheap. More expensive than Calgary. Surge pricing is insane.

    Food is on par with downtown Calgary prices. Liquor as well. Nowhere near as cheap as the last time I was in Texas for comparison. Great food though. BBQ has been great. Hot chicken is great.

    Huge lineups in all the tourist areas. Lots of traffic. I've seen no less than a dozen bachelorette parties doing their rounds at bars.

    We're here for a week playing tourist, I'll drop an all in cost when I'm done.
