Palm Springs ranks among the top 50 summer honeymoon destinations, according to WalletHub.com, a website designed for consumers and small business owners to assist financial decisions.

Chicago was picked the No. 1 location followed by Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Included under budget were lowest price of a 4-star hotel; lowest price available for a standard rental car; sales tax rate, and prevalence of affordable 4.5+ star restaurants.

Weather conditions included metrics for the difference between the historical average temperature for Aug. 23 and ideal temperature; historical average precipitation for Aug. 23, and historical average humidity for Aug. 23.

The metrics for activities and romanticism included beach quality (oceans and lakes); number of bed and breakfasts per capita; percentage of romantic hotels; number of attractions; number of activities, and number of nightlife options.

Palm Springs ranked 36th under budget, 48th for weather and 42nd for activities & romanticism.

Among California cities, Los Angeles (3rd), San Diego (9th), San Francisco (19th), Santa Barbara (37th) and Santa Monica (38th) ranked above Palm Springs.
