Travelers looking to stretch their dollar the furthest this upcoming autumn should consider a vacation rental.

Davenport and St. Petersburg are among the two cheapest fall destinations based on TripAdvisor's research. The former is located just outside of Orlando while the latter is situated along Tampa Bay just a short drive from some of the Sunshine State's top beaches.

Nearby Sarasota and Panama City Beach, Florida aren't too far behind with median nightly rates coming in at $35 and $40 per person for a group of four.
On the West Coast, Palm Desert ($35), South Lake Tahoe ($38) and Anaheim, California ($47) made the cut.
