HomeExchange is a way to experience the world as a local, not a tourist. We think crammed tour busses and high-priced hotels are for amateurs and prefer to see our favorite travel destinations the way they were meant to be seen.
To celebrate HomeExchange's 20th anniversary we had a contest to give away a free trip to LA! Participants were asked to send us photos and stories from their favorite local spots. We received almost 1,000 submissions featured below! See what it's like to live like a local all around the world by clicking on the photos.
