Many people are excited to get back to travelling this summer now that most COVID-19 restrictions are a thing of the past.

But even though travel is now possible, some people, understandbly, aren't ready to venture too far away from home.

That's why WalletHub set out to find 2021's best and worst cities for staycations and two California cities are in the top 10.

"To determine the best places for a fun-filled yet wallet-friendly staycation, WalletHub compared more than 180 cities across 46 key metrics," writes the site. "Our data set ranges from parks per capita to restaurant-meal costs to the share of residents who are vaccinated."

According to their findings, these are the best cities for staycations:

  1. Honolulu, HI
  2. Orlando, FL
  3. San Francisco, CA
  4. Charleston, SC
  5. Las Vegas, NV
  6. Portland, ME
  7. Chicago, IL

  10. Cincinnati, OH
  11. Salt Lake City, UT
  12. New Orleans, LA
  13. Portland, OR
  14. Tuscon, AZ

Their researchers also found that San Francisco came in third for cities with the most museums per capita and Los Angeles tied for first place for cities with the most spas per capita.
