Spring is just around the corner, and that means warmer weather. Can I get an amen? With so many opportunities at your feet as a traveling physician, choosing from the many spring destinations may be a little easier (and may come a little quicker), once you know where the fun, warm activities are.
Spring is the season for new beginnings, flowers, sunshine, and play. So, if the cold weather has you down, consider looking at this list of some of the best places in the United States to move to this spring during your next locum tenens assignment.
Spring Destinations for Locum Tenens
Arizona, Home of the Grand Canyon
Arizona is a great location opening its doors to many awesome activities both indoor and outdoor. Home to one of the most famous attractions in the nation, The Grand Canyon, Arizona houses some of the most beautiful views. If you really love the outdoors, check out some of the many hiking trails, state parks, camping, and water excursions the state has to offer.
And if you are someone who likes to enjoy the outdoors from a distance, don’t worry. The big AZ is no stranger to the arts. Possibly the grandest of the spring destinations, Arizona offers a number of museums, fairs, and family outings offered to everyone. And take a deep breath, because if you’re REALLY not an outdoor person, the Grand Canyon State also offers a number of spas and getaways to fulfill your needs.
Washington, D.C., A Capitol City
Two words: cherry blossoms. Washington, D.C. could be considered the epitome of the term “spring destinations”. It is one of the best places you could go for some beautiful foliage this spring. Each year, millions of people gather in D.C. for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The perfect, pink petals are fully in bloom, making it nearly impossible to take that perfect Instagram post (#nofilter).
And even after the festival is over, D.C. is home to many new restaurants, night- clubs, historical museums, and quaint shops. There’s something for everyone in this nation’s capitol.
Charleston, Taste of Southern Comfort
What a better way to enjoy your next locum tenens assignment than in the comforting hands of Charleston, South Carolina. A historical town, Charleston too extends its welcome to visitors with a respect for the past, but also a love for the future. Charleston wouldn’t be one of the hot spring destinations without serving up that fantastic southern barbecue, and providing its visitors with beaches to relax on once they’ve had their fill of pulled pork.
If your title also includes “history buff,” Charleston is home to Fort Sumter, the location the first shot of the Civil War took place. Offering ghost tours, night life, wine tours and tasting, aquariums and garden plantations, this spring destination is sure to peak one of your interests.
