Spring into your next career move by accepting jobs in these five states
While beautiful outdoor scenery and pleasant spring climes can be found throughout the United States, these five states are especially appealing.
Georgia’s prettiest season is the spring, once the rains of winter have abated and before humidity strikes in the summer. You can spend time outdoors enjoying the trails, lakes and scenic state parks that dot the landscape. During spring, Georgia offers activities like the Atlanta Dogwood Festival and the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival. You can also hike up Stone Mountain and take in a Braves game as the team opens a new season.
After thawing from a typically cold, wet Michigan winter, the Great Lakes state welcomes spring. In the Upper Peninsula, which residents call the UP or the “yoop,” you can watch the landscape shed its winter jacket and bloom anew while also visiting the Kitch-iti-kipi freshwater spring. In other parts of Michigan, cast your line in thawed lakes, enjoy Holland’s Tulip Time Festival and visit Vermontville for its Maple Syrup Festival. You can also celebrate Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers.
Spring in Arizona is marked by the melting snows in Flagstaff and pleasant pre-summer temps in Phoenix and Tucson. The state is home to many baseball teams’ spring training facilities, where you can watch pre-season games at a fraction of the baseball season cost. Spring is also a great time in Arizona for hiking excursions through the desert. Horseback riding and glamping are also popular spring pursuits. When you accept SLP jobs in Arizona, you’ll have your pick of new attractions to explore any time you’re off work.
Mother Nature’s annual kickoff to spring in the Lone Star State is the budding of the state flowers: bluebonnets. Don’t be surprised to find cars on the shoulder of busy highways with children being positioned in a field of these wildflowers for obligatory spring pictures. Spring also marks a season of many festivals in Texas, including Austin’s South by Southwest music festival. Birding and hiking are also popular during the spring, plus opening day kickoffs to baseball for the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros.
5. South Carolina
Coastal South Carolina might be a magnet for college spring breakers, but the rest of the state also offers visitors natural attractions and events to herald the start of temperate months. Birders and hikers alike enjoy the spring months in South Carolina as flocks return from the winter and trails beckon with freshly blooming plants. South Carolina is home to many state parks, including Lake Hartwell, Huntington Beach, Edisto Beach and Lake Wateree. The Appalachian Trail crosses the state, offering the allure of hiking the world’s longest trail. And although South Carolina doesn’t have a Major League team, it is home to several minor league farm teams where you can watch future big-league talents have fun on the field.
Whether you prefer to shed winter and spend spring a coastal state, the desert or beautiful scenery in flyover country, you can pursue lucrative and career-advancing SLP jobs by partnering with Med Travelers.
