If you’re looking to truly immerse yourself in a given area and aren’t too skeeved out by homes that may appear slightly ‘lived in,’ AirBnb is the way to go. Not only is it typically super cheap, you can never dismiss the importance of having a kitchen and a solid living room that doubles as a pre-game/afterparty spot.
I had my hesitations at first, but eventually realized that usually I’m too drunk to care about the sheets being brand new when I go to bed anyway. So I gave in, and have been a believer ever sine. My roommates and I even started renting out a three-bedroom shithole in Manhattan for a few hundred a night. Money started pouring in like the Salmon of Capistrano and none of our shit was stolen, besides a few bottled of liquor that were drank by a French family who didn’t understand what the term ’empty offer’ meant.
Regardless, I realize this reads like an ad, but you can’t book a fucking treehouse on Expedia.
