Chicago: Convincing the world the Midwest has potential since 1833. If you haven't been, you need to go. It has the second-best theatre scene in the U.S., amazing professional sports, and, obviously, that shiny bean. Its museums, the planetarium, the aquarium — there is so much to do in Chicago that you'd need to stay at least a week to let it all sink in.

Hipmunk Hotels: the Texas Edition

The more time that I spend in Texas and the more I learn about it, the more I realize that my generalizations and stereotypes aren't correct. I always assumed that it was George W. Bush territory and little else—when really it's home to history, amazing food, and interesting landscapes.

In case no one's broken the news to you yet, Arizona is beautiful. This gorgeous state doesn't have just craggy rock formations or red dust wafting in the air, either. Here you'll find greens, blues, browns, and golds, too. You won't find anything else like it in the States.

Finding lodging in the States, in my opinion, gets no more intimidating than when you're visiting New York City. Apart from the fact that people are renting closets for $2,000 per month, the sheer number of choices is totally daunting. If you're on a budget, fuhgeddaboudit.

Hipmunk Hotels: The Savannah Edition

Real talk. Everyone has the "one who got away." For me, that's Savannah. I lived in this historic, sulfuric-scented town for three years, stumbling on cobblestone streets and shaking my head at tourists putting Spanish moss on their faces (tip: don't do that). Needless to say, leaving a place as enchanting as the Hostess City was difficult, especially when I would forget I couldn't casually leave the bar with a drink-in-hand. The good news though? I can always go back.
