Breathtaking Views, Moderately Priced
Taking in a great view can be expensive — particularly in major cities where riding an elevator to the top of a skyscraper is a tourist attraction on its own. But there are often less-expensive alternatives. We went on the hunt for rooftops and terraces that offer great views or a relaxing outdoor atmosphere (and sometimes both) without the sky-high prices. A few are free public areas, but most are restaurants and bars where it's possible to enjoy the view, while also grabbing an affordable drink or meal — typically, $15 or less for each.
