My husband and I are from Omaha NE. We travel to CA often for business and to visit family. 5 things I can't live without are my family, air conditioning, a good nights sleep, conversation and dessert - preferably cake with LOTS of frosting. We usually do hotels (points!) but our daughter has enlightened us on airbnb. Our first time out, the reservation is for her, but I am sure we'll use this alternative travel - often - in the future.
