2014 has been a good year for Montgomery, Ala., when it comes to garnering national recognition.

Earlier this year, Montgomery topped USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice list of the best historic cities in the country, beating cities like Boston, Williamsburg and Savannah. Now there’s another claim to fame the city can brag about.

Montgomery was recently named one of the “Best Value Cities” in the country by travel website Trivago. Montgomery is ranked 3rd in the nation when it comes to cities where you’ll get the most bang for your buck, topped only by Macon, Ga., and Branson, Mo. To arrive at this ranking, Trivago looked at each city’s average accommodation prices for a double hotel room and the overall hotel rating of each city.

Montgomery is a city full of history, and these rankings prove that it’s a worthy tourist destination. There’s something for everyone: The Montgomery Museum of Fine Art for the art lovers, the F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum for the bookworms and the Civil Rights Memorial for the history buffs. Kids might enjoy a trip to the Montgomery Zoo.

While planning vacations for the upcoming year, Montgomery is a city worth keeping your eye on.

Here are the top 10 Best Value Cities according to Trivago:
