My husband and I live in NYC with our 2-year old son. I am a university professor and my husband works in the finance industry. We like to get out of the city as much as possible (skiing in the winter and hiking/kayaking/swimming in the summer). We generally don't stay inside much when on vacation, so we do not require TV/cable/etc., although Internet is always helpful. We usually look for a place with at least a small kitchenette, so that it would be easy to prepare and store meals for our son. We do not have pets and do not smoke.
