Part of what defines a getaway is the freedom from responsibility. A new place, some refreshing faces and warm bodies, no reservations.

When you live in a city with topnotch hotels and malls where luxury shopping is the main event, it’s easy to drain out your bank account. For example, Mojitos in Miami can cost as much as $15, and if you’re a Mojito-lover, you’ll know how fast you can blow off your salary. There are ways for you to dodge the spender’s traps, though. For example, if you must have a Mojito after work, you can stick to places with Happy Hour specials.

Even if you’re just traveling to these cities, you should take the time to do the math. It might take some of the fun out of traveling, but it’ll keep your budget (and sanity) intact. Below are the most expensive cities in America to watch out for and what you should expect from them before you purchase your plane ticket.
