You love to travel. You love to do it for work, you love to do it just because, and now you’re looking for a new place that supports this pillar of your family’s life. So you don’t have to, we’ve scoured hundreds of travel websites, airlines, and hotels to find out which city is the best place to live if you travel regularly for your job or just because and want to save on your travels. The question is: if you could live anywhere, where would be the best place to live if your job/lifestyle included constant travel?
Answer: These three cities.
Number 3: Seattle. Seattle is on track to become the west coast’s newest international hub. As Delta put it in their latest ad campaign, “Seattle is the same distance from Tokyo to London.” So what has taken airlines so long to catch on to that fact? Maybe it’s because Seattle didn’t have a population big enough to support the existence of a major international hub or a call to transport that many people to and from this part of the west coast. With an influx of 10,000 people a month at the writing of this post, Seattle is fast to becoming one of the largest cities in the US and an international destination of its own. All these factors put it at number 3 on our list.
Number 2: Chicago. Chicago is not only cheap for international travel, it also has deals for national travel. Though you won’t be on a too many direct flights to Paris or Hong Kong, with that $500, seven-night tour, plus hotels you picked up through www.travezoo.com, you will be getting a good price. People in other direct flying paths can’t boast better than this. Add to that the fact that you can get weekends in Vegas including flight, hotel, and food for less than $300 and we were sold. This windy city is still good for the traveler that wants to be a leaf on the wind, whenever the chance arises.
Number 1: is a Tie between the greater New York area and the greater Los Angeles area. These long-standing international hubs offer great travel deals regardless of the state of repair the airports might find themselves in.
“So why the tie?” you ask. “Cheap” flight access all depends on which direction you are flying. LA for travel to Asia, NY for Europe. Don’t over think this one. You don’t need to live in Hollywood or pick up a Times Square penthouse to get these great deals. You need to live within a two hour drive of the airport. This leaves most people with hundreds of options. They can be very affordable, especially if your job is tied to traveling and not your home location or the need to get to Manhattan and LA proper on a daily basis.
