“offMetro is one of my favorite resources for getting out of the city and really traveling like a local. And with fuel prices rising, having options that are car-free make the experience even more valuable.”
CBS Travel Editor Peter Greenberg

“It’s easy to decide where to go on vacation if you’ve got thousands of dollars and a week or more to spend, but planning a quick, cheap day or weekend away is surprisingly difficult—which is why offMetro is a great idea!”
