Sampling a new city..

I want to sample freelance life in another American city for 1-2 weeks this summer. How should I accomplish this on a student budget?

I'm building up a design portfolio. I have some free time now and would love some new scenery and a place to work independently on some unfinished projects for a short time. I want to scout the country for a place to live after graduation.
Currently in Utah.
Considering the following places: Austin, Seattle, Raleigh, Santa Rosa (potentially including San Francisco), Vancouver (Canada), Montana.
I feel like there has to be an option that's more realistic than staying in an extended stay hotel (artificial/potentially expensive) and less committed than renting a room/apartment for a month +. I'll honestly sleep anywhere if it's a good value.
My sole criteria is that I want to feel immersed in what the city has to offer. I'll spend most of my time either in coffee shops working or exploring the culture of the place.
Timeframe: Within the next 2 months
What would be the best way to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance!
