50 Chic City Apartments You Can Rent On Airbnb

When we aren't looking for an escape to a treehouse or shipping container home, we are ready to explore some of the best cities across the country. Whether they are massive urban centers filled with the hustle and bustle, or smaller, cozier towns that have unique shopping and dining experiences, we love going to a new city. Travel + Leisure notes that there are benefits to large cities (think Chicago and New York) that are described as "exhilarating." Still, smaller cities, especially those found in Southern states, are equally as fun to explore.

Wherever you end up, you won't be without things to do. Cities are well-known for a slew of activities, from visiting the latest art exhibit at your favorite museum to catching a world-class baseball game at the stadium you've always dreamed of going to. According to Condé Nast Traveler, this year's best large cities include Chicago at number one, followed by New York and New Orleans. In comparison, the small towns that made the top 10 list include Aspen, Charleston, Santa Fe, and Jackson Hole. With that in mind, here are 50 chic city apartments that you can rent on Airbnb. You can use these apartments as your home base while you explore these incredible cities.
