Orlando has been named the top warm weather destination in America.

WalletHub released its annual analysis with the City Beautiful topping the charts. The personal finance website rated the top 59 domestic destinations in warm and cold categories.

The rating is great news for Orlando, considering looming forecasts of lower temperatures, more rain throughout the U.S. and extra snow in some regions compared with the previous winter.

To help Americans plan their travels over the colder months, WalletHub’s analysts rank the cheapest U.S. destinations that are also the easiest to reach. The results were based on 32 key metrics, including two weeks of flight data, safety indicators and weather predictions.

WalletHub’s rankings focus primarily on the cost and convenience of traveling to each location, as well as affordability. It also ensures that the number of attractions and variety of activities in each destination will entertain all ages.

Orlando topped the list of 37 warm weather destinations for the holidays, followed by Las Vegas and San Diego. Chicago, Portland and Washington D.C. led the 32 best winter holiday destinations for cold weather lovers.
