Couchsurfing Milestone

couchsurfingRecently CouchSurfing celebrated having 1 million members with a party in NYC. CouchSurfing is simple: you sign up to host and/or be hosted by other members.

Doctors, business owners, and other “regular people” are also users, making this a growing community that is also increasing its status and opportunities for networking.

There are many places abroad that are listed, but you can also stay in homes accoss the U.S. Take a chance and make a new friend by hosting or being hosted. Listings include user recommendations and address verification.
