Opinion/Editorial: Virginia staycations

  • 0

About 1 in 3 Americans is not planning to take a trip this summer.

WalletHub, the personal-finance website, evaluated the best and worst cities for a staycation, comparing 180 localities across 46 key indicators gauging activities, value, COVID-19 vaccination rates and other factors.

Top best cities for staycations include tourist favorites Honolulu; Orlando, Florida; San Francisco; Charleston, South Carolina; and Las Vegas.

Not surprisingly, Washington, D.C., which placed at No. 21, boasts the most museums per capita.

Three Virginia cities rank in the top 100: Virginia Beach, 49; Norfolk, 58 (No. 3 for most tennis courts per capita); and Richmond, 81 (No. 3 for most coffee and tea shops per capita).

Another Hampton Roads city, Chesapeake, ranked seventh from the bottom. How can anywhere near an ocean not rank highly?
