Rave with the locals at some of its top festivals such as the annual Summerfest, where big-name bands headline an 11-day festival of non-stop dancing, or simply chug those weekends away with pints of cold brew beer if you’re not one for loud music!

Your room is well-prepared for any existential crisis you may have in the middle of the night - lined with pillows that are marked with a curious “?”, you can snuggle up and contemplate about life with your significant other.
