Originally from the Philadelphia area, my husband and I have lived in Chicagoland since 2009 and love exploring the city and surrounding areas. We welcomed a daughter in February 2014, so our travel has slowed down a bit, but we are looking forward to taking her along on some adventures in the near future - most likely to cheer on our beloved Penn State Nittany Lions at various Big Ten schools :)
Pre-baby, we basically viewed our lodgings as places to recharge (sleep), wanting to make the most out of being in new locales. Now we tend to spend more time where we stay to accommodate our daughter, so we really appreciate having amenities like kitchens and separate living/bedroom areas. We also love walking and/or using public transit whenever possible. We love the many unique lodging options that Airbnb offers!
