If you’re thinking of taking a few days off this summer, why not splurge a little for a trip for the entire family? AAA (American Automobile Association) recently released its annual vacation costs survey, which ranks states by how expensive they are on a daily basis for a family of four, based on the costs of food and lodging.

Of course, if you’re looking to save a few bucks this summer instead, you can always hit some of America’s cheapest destinations: North Dakota ($191), Nebraska ($191), Kansas ($193) and Iowa ($196).

The overall cost of vacationing increased by 5.4 percent from last year, said Michael Petrone, director of AAA tourism information development. “Rate increases for lodgings are mostly a result of supply and demand, especially in major markets.”
