If traveling for concerts is one of your favorite things to do, then you might want to check out this study first because a very famous Texas city has ranked as one of the most expensive cities for concerts!

Traveling for a concert is one of my favorite things. However, I know that once I purchase those out-of-town tickets,  it will take some major planning on my part for the rest! If you travel for concerts then you know you have to add in the costs for food, Uber rides, flights or gas if you're traveling by car. Well, now I know that I'll have to double those costs if I plan to see a concert in Austin!

Austin has ranked as one of the most expensive U.S. cities for a weekend concert vacation according to travel company Upgraded Points.
