WHAT LURKS BENEATH
There's more to most cities than what scrapes the sky—as long as you're willing to peer beneath the surface.
FROM OUR BLOG: THIS JUST IN
BudgetTravel.com recently helped field questions from readers in London about fun things to do in New York City. "Where are the hottest bars in New York? Macy's or Fifth Avenue for shopping? Where's best to ice-skate?" We answered these questions and more.
GET THE DETAILS
Readers are getting in on the action by sharing their favorite affordable hotels worldwide. Thanks to reader Susan Larson, we're covering Paris's Hotel de la Porte Dorée, which burns scented candles, serves organic croissants, and wants to help you make the most of the outdoor activities nearby. From $122.
