"We visit and sleep" not accepted?

I didn't know that "visit" could be used intransitively.

We don't live here. We're just visiting.

But is it really natural for a native, used like this?

I'm a native speaker of American English, mostly as spoken south of the Mason-Dixon line and east of the Mississippi River. The intransitive use of "visit" in the quoted example does not feel like a stretch to me.
