I live in suburban Chicago and work in the tv sports production field. I enjoy travel, this job requires a lot. By taking extended assignments, that gives me a chance to settle into a rhythm and I prefer to stay out of hotels.
Bike riding is a real passion and I expect to purchase or bring one to enjoy whatever area I visit. Other outdoor activities need to be available nearby including golf, hiking, swimming or surfing and the access to health and Xfit clubs plus yoga studios.
Night-life and a vibrant local lifestyle are key to a balanced stay and weigh into my decision on where to stay.
