Finding a decent place used to be hard, according to my mom. She told me how long it would take her and her best friend to find an apartment because they had to go to each one they were interested in. What took them several days to do takes me a few minutes thanks to the Internet. When I told her I was going to look at apartments in Las Vegas in Summerlin, she told me how happy she was that I would be able to find an apartment a lot faster than what she had been able to at my age.
Finding a place online really is that easy too. I just did a search for Vegas apartments that are in my price range, and I was able to find The Palms at Peccole Ranch pretty easily. First off, the location could not be any better. There are so many job opportunities in Vegas, and this complex is central to a good many of them. I knew that I did not want my life there to be all about work though. I wanted to enjoy where I live, which meant that I had to make sure that the amenities that are offered are ones that I will enjoy.
I did not care about having a coffee shop on the premises or having dry cleaning services readily available, because I rarely use those two services. I did care about having a clubhouse where I could hang out with other tenants, having a pool that I could swim in, and having a fitness center that I could access at any time of the day or night, since I sometimes like to have a workout really early in the mornings. The Palms offers everything I want and more, and that is why I now call it home.
