Win 1 Trip Every Year in the Life of Adventure Travel Contest

Even though Dr. Oz, and other advisers, recommend we take our earned vacation time each year, most Americans don’t. In North America, it’s partly because of our masochistic work ethic and partly because most of us can’t afford it. With Exodus Travels’ latest adventure travel contest, though, wants to make sure that, for the next 25 years, you have no excuses.

The Life of Adventure Travel Contest is simple: One lucky winner from each of three regions will be chosen to win one adventure trip per year for the next 25 years. To be clear, that means a free bucket-list-worthy adventure vacation every year through 2045. Winners will be given an annual travel credit of $2,500 to put toward a trip of their choice. Over two and a half decades that amounts to more than $60,000. That’s not a bad haul for five minutes’ worth of data entry.

Even for hardened adventure travelers who typically “don’t do group trips,” Exodus Travels offers an impressive catalog. Earlier this year, we covered the unique Five Stans of the Silk Road Photography Adventure — a hardcore, 23-day expedition following the original Silk Road in the steps of Genghis Khan across five countries. The Life of Adventure travel contest includes a long list of similar trips, totaling more than 600 in over 100 countries. Exodus is inviting contestants to, for example, climb Kilimanjaro along the less-traveled Lemosho route, travel the Mekong Delta by boat, and stargaze in Oman’s Wahiba Sands. Most of the company’s trips take small groups of no more than 16 people. It’s the closest thing to traveling alone without actually being alone.

Travelers can enter by visiting Exodus Travels and choosing their preferred style of travel. These include Exodus’ typical adventure tour types like Cycling, Cultural, Wildlife, Polar, Mixed, and Family. The final step is to select their top three dream trips across Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. The Life of Adventure contest is open now through February 17, 2020. One winner from the United States/Canada, one from the United Kingdom, and a final one from Australia/New Zealand will be chosen at random.

If you win, the only catch is that you have to take us with you — or not. We didn’t actually read the terms & conditions, but we have to assume it’s in there.

San Francisco Travel Guide: Where to Stay, What to Eat, and More
Beyond the Golden Gate, There's a City Full of Surprises
A view of the Transamerica Pyramid Center from City Lights Books in San Francisco

The last few years have brought about plenty of change to San Francisco (or SF). COVID-19 shut the city down for a while. After the city began to reopen, local and national media stories became viral (if you'll excuse the pun) memes that led to a whole lot of misperceptions on how safe SF actually is. As the digital revolution gave way to a jaw-dropping real estate bubble, many wondered why this city is so expensive and who can really afford to live here.

Despite the many twists and turns of the last two years, San Francisco remains one of America's greatest cities. SF continues to surprise visitors in the best ways with treasure troves of award-winning restaurants, grand hotels, nonstop entertainment, expansive parks, and historically rich neighborhoods. We want to help you find ways to have a good time and take advantage of activities that are available throughout this amazing city, and we hope you'll read this San Francisco travel guide to see the best places to stay, eat, and have fun in the Golden City.

Las Vegas is Back and Better Than Ever

A New Look at What's Hot in Sin City
In March 2020, the Las Vegas Strip suddenly emptied out and became eerily quiet. A drive down the famous street lined with mega-resorts and their glitzy lights was reminiscent of a drive through a post-apocalyptic city in any number of dystopian movies and video games. The cause of that desertion — the COVID-19 pandemic — only amplified that uneasy eeriness.

Halfway into 2022, Las Vegas is back with a vengeance. A brand-new casino resort has already made waves on the Strip. The restaurant scene is back and better than ever, with a mix of mainstays that survived 2020 and hot new spots that have everyone talking. Nightclubs and pool day clubs are once again open to all who seek the most scandalously good times this side of Ibiza. The airport and the freeways are jam-packed with travelers again. Finally, Las Vegas is on the mend, and we're here to guide you through all the best re-openings, all the hot new attractions, and everything else you need to know about Las Vegas travel.

Experience the Best of Northern Arizona and the Grand Canyon
The South Rim of the Grand Canyon (Arizona)

Arizona is a state that automatically conjures up a certain type of desert scenery for many travelers. But while Arizona is a naturally arid state, the climate, the ecosystems, and the topography of Northern Arizona can differ greatly from those of Phoenix and Tucson to the south. Believe it or not, the higher reaches of the Grand Canyon get snow every winter!

The Grand Canyon may be one of America's most famous national parks, but there's so much more to see and do beyond the visitor center and the gift shops. Here's all you need to know about the region's best hikes, some more adventurous ways to explore the Grand Canyon, the coolest college town you might not have heard of, the most mystical red rocks you've ever experienced, and the vibrantly beautiful Native American communities of Northern Arizona.
