I love going to Las Vegas. Use local bus and eat at buffets and use hotel offers to save on costs. I like to visit the museums and try to hang out in a different casino each time. The people watching is great here as people seem to let their free flag fly.

We splurge on decadent meals. Hit all free museum's. Use local transportation to save it is less than half a cab fare.

My favorite place in all the world is Ireland.  I have close family and friends there so I spend most on travel within the country by way of car rental.  My family is in different areas of Ireland so the car is easiest to use.  As I age I may use public transport but not this year or next I hope.  My other expense is a personal treat of an over night at a favorite/luxury (to me) B&B or Hotel.  Hotel being the The Causeway Hotel at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland.  I stay with family and friends in Dublin, but travel allows me to discover new sights and scenes.   Special restaurant and a little shopping is on the list, but not the most important.

Depends on where we are!

 

If we are in New York, one of my favorites, the money is spent on events and shows and shopping for items that are found in great variety there..  it is a fairly expensive place to visit during holidays as travel and hotel costs are high as is entertainment but it is always packed with (happy) people.

We spend money on experiences (hike to the top of this mountain, ride that trail, drive this scenic byway, listen to that musical group, attend a street festival) rather than things. We just don't need things at this point in our lives.
