Travel isn’t cheap, but some vacation towns are much pricier than others.Bundle has figured out America’s most expensive vacation destinations using out-of-town spending data from millions of consumers on shopping, dining, hotels, movie theatres, public golf courses, public transportation, taxis and limos, tourist attractions and exhibits, and travel agencies.

The most expensive places to vacation in the U.S. are ski towns and beach towns, but the places that topped the list may come as a surprise.

Bundle has been kind enough to share their data with us. Check out all the details at Bundle >
