Blog to Watch: Cities on the Cheap

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  03.17.09 | 10:27 AM ET

The site—which got its start simply as Atlanta on the Cheap—now covers the latest bargains and budget shortcuts in 30-plus locations across the U.S. and Canada. The emphasis so far seems to be on the Sunbelt, and on kid-friendly destinations (there’s an entire Disney on the Cheap page), but if those aren’t your bag, don’t despair: Cities on the Cheap is still expanding.

There are a lot of On The Cheap sites other than just in the Sunbelt—we’re running two in Hawaii ( and I want to add that many of the On The Cheap sites are having contests with great prizes right now because it’s our big launch week. Thanks for the mention!
