We are from Vienna, VA where we both work full-time. I am a college prof, and my husband works for a gov't contractor. We have a toddler (who is not coming with) and 2 dogs (who will stay with the toddler). When we travel, we usually prefer eclectic, cool, and off the beaten path to touristy. I'm sure we'll be looking for nifty restaurants. This will be our first airbnb experience. My niece is an airbnb host in Chicago and really likes it.
