I'm originally from Northern California, went to William & Mary for undergrad, back to NorCal for 3 years in the wine industry, then 2 years in DC in the beer industry, and now back to CA for my MBA at UCLA Anderson. Way too much coast to coast travel.
So far I've used Airbnb in New Orleans and Austin while on cross-country drives, and both stays have set an amazingly high bar in terms of service and overall experience. I can't recommend my previous hosts enough. Going forward, I'm looking forward to using Airbnb to explore some new cities, states, breweries and wineries, and hopefully meet some wonderfully unique hosts along the way.
