5 Must-See Attractions in Vegas

5 Must-See Attractions in Vegas

We had a blast hanging out with our Junior Editor in Vegas.

Alexis Chateau PR

In late November of 2016, we struck a partnership deal with an indie travel service. We then kicked off 2017 by preparing for the launch of our very own in-house travel agency.

We then scheduled beta testing of our travel services for January 28, 2017. On January 27, 2017, the first travel ban was signed into effect. By February, a second had followed. These events compelled us to postpone all travel-related plans at the firm.

However, after closely monitoring the sociopolitical landscape for two months, we decided to resume beta testing of our domestic travel services.

For our flagship test trip, we sent Founder & Managing Director, Alexis Chateau, to Vegas for a 5-day trip. She later returned with a full report on the must-see attractions in Las Vegas. Here are our top five from that list.

At 1,592ft, Cowles Mountain is the highest peak in the city of San Diego. The hike to the summit of Cowles is possibly the most popular hiking route in all of San Diego County, which makes an early start a requirement for weekend outings. Hiking to the nearby Pyles Peak is far less popular, and the perfect addition to a hike up Cowles.

20 Things I Learned My Freshman Year

Here are 20 useful tips for freshmen, as told by a college student who already survived her first year of college.

1. Take advantage of the free food around campus. There have been many of times where I would go to an event on campus and they would offer free food. This would be great, especially when I start to run out of money on my meal plan.

2. If you haven’t been away from home for months at a time, you will get home sick. Or maybe you’re tough and won’t. But if you do, more than likely, you’re not the only one and that’s okay. Eventually, you’ll adjust. It just takes time.

3. Amazon Prime for Students – it’s a thing, and it’s free for the first 6-months (don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want to continue after the 6-months). You will get FREE two-day shipping (perfect for purchasing and renting books or random things for your room), access to thousands of TV shows and movies, and unlimited…
