Denver hotels To prove that travel can still be part of a frugal lifestyle, CheapTickets has identified the top three Cheaponomy travel destinations, which offer plenty of free attractions and cheap hotels.

Austin, Texas: With an average daily rate of $78.70 at Austin hotels and dozens of free activities, the Texas capital takes our top spot for Cheaponomy travel. Austin is known for its music scene, and it’s easy to find free concerts just about any day of the week. You can also tour the Governor’s Mansion, visit the historic Paramount Theater and take the trolley around town — all for free.

St. Louis, Missouri: This Midwestern city comes in #2 with an average daily hotel rate of $83.63. Beyond inexpensive St. Louis hotels, the city has one of the best free zoos in the country, and you can also visit the St. Louis Art Museum and Boeing Space Station for free.

Denver, Colorado: The Mile High City takes the #3 spot. Denver hotels boast an average daily rate of $109.85. Visitors can enjoy many of Denver’s natural attractions for free. Coors Brewery offers free tours, and Dinosaur Ridge, with its prehistoric animal tracks, is free.

CheapTickets knows that travel doesn’t have to cost a lot. With cheap flights and hotels and free activities, travel in The Age of the Cheaponomy can be affordable and fun.

ColoradoimageBy Samantha Chapnick

On April 11, New York City will be the best place to be to do some serious skiing, whitewater rafting, golfing and fly-fishing.

The state of Colorado is taking over Madison Square Park (23rd and Broadway, not to be confused with Madison Square Garden!) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., giving anyone who stops by a chance to experience a Colorado vacation.

My favorite part is the custom treat created by the best custard maker in NewYork City (The Shake Shack). Apparently, they created a special dessert specifically for the event: "Colorado’s High Altitude Concrete."  This lemon verbena custard dessert will be mixed with a wild berry compote and a homemade granola.

If, unlike for me, food is not reason enough to venture forth, here are some more:

  • Rock climb on a challenging rock wall or try the new line of commuter bikes from REI.
  • Practice your golf swing with Colorado Springs pros.
  • Listen to live music from Denver artists Angie Stephens and Jill Stevenson.
  • Downhill ski on a state-of-the-art ski simulator.
  • Get up close and personal with Colorado wildlife.
  • Kayak the whitewater rapids of Chafee County.
  • Watch the gravity-defying Breckenridge mountain bike stunt team.
  • Fly fish with a Fort Collins pro angler.
  • Throw a lasso and join a campfire "sing-a-long" with a dude ranch cowboy.
  • Pose for a photo with a Durango cowboy on horseback.
  • Be entertained by street performers and "buskers" from Boulder‘s famed Pearl Street Mall.
  • Take part in an on-camera "screen test" with award-winning filmmaker and director of the
    Independence Film Fest of Colorado.
  • Unwind and pamper yourself with a massage from the Aspen Club & Spa.
  • Sampleaward-winning chili and spices from SnowmassChili and
    Brew Fest
    .
  • Enter to win one of four Colorado vacations and pick up valuable Colorado information at the
    Tourism Kiosk.
