I'm originally from Michigan and now live in Chicago working for a tech startup. I love good food, beer, dance and travel - all of which are better when I'm spending time with friends and family.
My favorite place in the U.S. (thus far) is Glen Arbor, MI. It was voted Good Morning America's Most Beautiful Place, and it is a seriously incredible part of northern Michigan. Lots of cherries, wineries, sweeping vistas, and the BEST outdoor activities in the summer. Big Sky, Montana is a close second. Fresh air, mountains, spring skiing in your t-shirt ... enough said.
I've hosted several times with Airbnb and have had nothing but great experiences! People are very respectful, trustworthy and friendly - it's a cool service, for sure.
