AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Greater Austin as a prime summer vacation spot? That's what a new report says.

Personal finance website WalletHub released its Best Summer Travel Destinations for 2019 Wednesday, ranking the greater Austin area 2nd in the country.

The report looked at six key categories - travel costs & hassles, local costs, attractions, weather, activities, and safety. The 100 metro areas were then ranked across 40 key indicators, including metrics such as cheapest flights, number of attractions, and the average price of a two-person meal.

Orlando, Florida topped the list; the rest of the top five include Washington D.C., Chicago, and Dallas-Fort Worth.

San Antonio, El Paso, and Houston all ranked in the top 25.
