Sure, you could bury your nose in a tourist guide map and ride around on a sightseeing bus, but why do that when you could live like a local? For our Community, traveling on a Home Exchange has become more than just taking a trip; it's a way of life. Discover hidden gems that only the locals know about, like the Hidden Lanes of Melbourne, Australia. Off the beaten path of the main Melbourne roadways lies a maze of tiny streets full of cafes, boutiques, music, and art. Ask your host to leave you a list of their favorite spots; the best ones can be tucked behind unmarked doors and can't be found in any guidebook.
