Being someone who is fascinated with (the idea of) traveling, it makes sense that to fully enjoy your travels, and get the best experiences, staying in legit places instead of always bunking up in some motel/hotel is the way to go.
If you want to avoid hotels and motels, Airbnb is one of the best ways as of right now. That said, the app lacked certain things that required additional apps and steps to get a complete picture of your “place” and things around it. Today, however, that changes with a fresh relaunch of the Android and iOS apps. With recommendations on places to stay, eat, drink, and more, the motto of acting like a local should be even more seamless.
