In order to create this interactive our researchers used Tripadvisor to search for the top user rated attraction in each category for every state. We selected "Budget-friendly" and "Traveller Ranked" as filters. For our "Overall" choice we chose the top attraction on this list. To give us our attractions in the other sections we selected the desired type of attraction using the "Types of Attractions" filters. In a small number of cases there was no "Budget-friendly" attraction using this method of filtering. In these cases we used keywords such as "cheap" and "budget" in the state page on Tripadvisor. For example, we clicked on the state and searched for "budget water park". Then we evaluated which of the attractions from the results had a combination of good reviews and had various references to value for money. It was the attractions that were reported as budget-friendly and highly reviewed which were chosen for the final list. All the data can be found here.
